Feeling self-conscious about having a “gummy smile?” When you finish braces or clear aligner treatment, Dr. VanderWall can perform gingival recontouring with our soft tissue laser. This will create the ideal gum contour and height to frame your teeth for a more balanced smile.
Waiting for an impacted tooth to finally erupt so you can start braces treatment? Our soft tissue laser can take care of that too! The laser is able to expose teeth, speeding up the eruption process. We can also use laser treatment to remove gum tissue in order to place brackets, TADs or other appliances.
Whatever the reason you choose soft tissue laser treatment, the procedure is fast and painless. We’ll apply a topical anesthetic (no needles!) to the area we’re treating and the only thing you’ll feel is the movement of the laser tip. You’ll get a picture-perfect smile without discomfort.
