A less painful and effective way to treat gum disease

Did you know that gum recontouring using scalpels is a thing of the past? In the wake of technological advances in the healthcare industry specifically, dentistry, cosmetic dentistry has access to laser technology to precisely and quickly eliminate excess gum tissue. Our dentists use the Biolase soft tissue laser for this procedure. Also, local anesthesia is used to numb the specific area to be treated before our dentist begins to shape your gums. Even minor procedures to remove soft tissues can make a significant difference in your overall smile.

Gum Infection Treatment with Laser-Guided Therapy


Suppose you feel that excess gum tissue is making your smile less attractive. In that case, it would be best to contact Molson Park Dental Office to schedule a gum recontouring consultation with our dentists in Barrie.

Gum Infection Treatment

Some people have excessive gum tissue that appears to extend too low on a tooth or an entire row of teeth. This makes their teeth appear too small, unhealthy, and uneven. While red, puffy, or irritated gums are signs of gum disease, not every patient with these signs (or gummy smile) has gum disease. Sometimes, the excessive gum tissue is caused by various issues such as:

  • The overall flexibility of your upper lip, resulting in more exposure of your gum line
  • The natural way the teeth may be formed in the gum line
  • The overall development of your upper jaw

At Molson Park Dental Office, cosmetic dentists perform laser-guided gum recontouring procedures for Barrie patients who are embarrassed by a gummy smile or are uncomfortable with this oral health condition.

Importance of Even Gum Lines

Having the recommended amount of gum tissue on your teeth could be the difference between a beautiful smile and teeth that seem overtaken by excessive gum tissue. Keep in mind that the term ‘excessive gum tissue’ is somewhat relative. Sometimes it’s true that a simple recontouring procedure can successfully make your teeth seem more uniform. In fact, most patients don’t know that removal of excess gum tissue may be the only thing they need to improve their overall smiles.

During the consultation session, the dentist may ask you about the specific areas of concern about your teeth. If the overall size of your teeth is bothersome, the dentist will analyze your smile to establish whether laser-guided gum recontouring can produce the desired results.




Benefits of Laser-Guided Gum Recontouring.

Generally, gum recontouring with scalpels is a thing of the past. The advent of highly reliable medical equipment and advancements in technology, particularly dentistry, allows cosmetic dentists to use laser technology to precisely and quickly eliminate excess gum tissue. Our dentists use Biolase soft tissue laser technology in our Barrie dental office for this procedure. A local anesthetic may also be necessary to know the specific area to be treated before the dentist starts shaping your gum line.
