Using our KaVo dental laser, we can complete these procedures minimally invasively, causing little discomfort during surgery and a fast recovery after treatment. Without the need for scalpels, this innovative alternative to traditional methods is many patients’ first choice for improving the look and function of their gum tissue!

Our Soft Tissue Treatments
Gummy Smile Treatment
Too much gum tissue covering the teeth gives the illusion of a “gummy” smile that many patients find unattractive. We gently remove and reshape the gum tissue with a dental laser to naturally and symmetrically arch over each tooth. This improves the tooth-to-gum ratio and overall smile aesthetics.
Teeth that need treatment or a cosmetic restoration but are covered by excessive gum tissue can benefit from crown lengthening. During this procedure, we use our dental laser to remove the gum tissue around the tooth crown to gain access to the areas in need of treatment.
If your gums are healthy but you find their dark hue to be unattractive, we offer laser gum bleaching. This depigmentation removes outer layers of melanin-rich dark gum tissue to reveal the healthy, pink tissue beneath. The appointment is short and painless, with immediate and long-lasting results.
Additionally, we offer Opalescence® teeth whitening to complement our periodontal plastic surgery treatments. This professional-grade whitening provides more dramatic bleaching without the sensitivity or lengthy treatment times of over-the-counter options.
