Laser Gum Recontouring

Looking for a way to enhance your smile? Laser gum recontouring in American Fork, Utah, may be a solution for you!

What is Laser Gum Recontouring?
Laser gum recontouring, also known as crown lengthening, gingivectomy or cosmetic gum surgery, is an aesthetic treatment used to reshape your gumline.

Patients who receive this treatment often have “gummy” smiles, a normal condition in which the gum tissue of the mouth appears further down the tooth crown line, making the teeth look stubby, short or the gum tissue itself appear bulky.

To correct this, our dentist and team use a laser to remove excess gum tissue, recontouring the shape of the tissue so your teeth appear longer and fuller for a more pleasant and uniform appearance for your smile.

At our office, we use the Solea® laser for our laser treatments, which helps Dr. Clayton M. Hansen work with more accuracy and precision. This treatment can be used both aesthetically and restoratively and can be completed in only one dental visit.

If you have an uneven smile and would like to improve its appearance, please call our dental office and ask about laser gum recontouring! We are happy to help you make the best out of your beautiful, natural smile.
