Hard/Soft Tissue Recontouring
If you have uneven or receding gums, we are able to use our state-of-the-art lasers to create a more even gum line aesthetic. By removing or reshaping hard and soft tissue, we can re-contour a more natural-looking gum line and smile for the future.
A frenectomy is a procedure for a child that consists of releasing the frenum under the upper lip or tongue to allow for a better range of motion. Children who are born “tongue tied” or “lip tied” may have restricted movements, resulting in speech or airway difficulties. The laser that we use does not cut into the skin, but rather acts as a method to vaporize the tissue. Because there is very little discomfort associated with the laser treatment, most children and babies sleep through the dental repair procedure.
