Gum Recontouring (Cosmetic Gingivectomy)

Reshape your gumline comfortably with our advanced laser or traditional techniques, harmonizing your smile and boosting your self-confidence.

Excess gum tissue - sometimes referred to as a “gummy smile” - can shorten the appearance of your teeth to make your smile look small. A gum recontouring procedure reshapes the gums and lengthens the appearance of the teeth to achieve a big, beautiful smile! By recontouring gum tissue with our Picasso diode laser, we can minimize your recovery time and improve balance and symmetry between the teeth and gums.​

The Process

We believe a beautiful smile begins with the right communication and a commitment to dental health. Each visit to our office starts with a conversation about you: your health and your dental needs and goals.


We will administer local anesthesia to numb the area.


We then use a special laser or scalpel to remove excess gum tissue and reshape the gum line.


Finally, we will provide aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and a successful outcome.
