In some cases, your teeth may appear proportionately small due to excess gum tissue. During laser gum contouring, Dr. Trovato can remove excess tissue and smooth an uneven gum line. Laser therapy allows Dr. Trovato to precisely target treated tissue without affecting the surrounding gums. Additionally, the high-power laser kills bacteria and seals off blood vessels as it goes, reducing swelling, discomfort, and the risk of infection. Gum contouring is often combined with veneers, bonding, or tooth reshaping.
