Comfortable Laser Care for Your Smile
Cosmetic Laser Procedures
We use our soft tissue laser to perform the following procedures:
Also known as “gummy smile treatment,” esthetic crown lengthening gently removes excess gum tissue from around the teeth, leaving behind a uniform, radiant smile. The appearance of short teeth or an uneven gum line is easily reversed with gummy smile treatment.
With a gingivectomy, we remove overgrown, inflamed or bulbous tissue from around the teeth, without the use of incisions or sutures. Laser gingivectomy care helps treat gum tissues affected by gum disease, reducing periodontal pocket depths and improving gum health.
A laser frenectomy is a simple surgical procedure used to sever a short or tight frenum, also known as a lip-tie or tongue-tie. Treating this type of condition improves oral health, oral function and often smile appearance.
Benefits of Cosmetic Laser Treatment
Laser procedures offer a number of benefits over a traditional approach to crown lengthening, gingivectomy and frenectomy procedures:
- Gentle, virtually painless process
- Improved comfort
- Reduced need for anesthetic
- Faster healing
- Minimal bleeding
- No incisions or sutures
Our Minimally Invasive Approach
By using advanced laser technology, Dr. Jirik takes a more conservative approach to performing gingivectomy, frenectomy and gummy smile treatment. We do offer sedation dentistry services for all of our procedures. However, our laser treatment is so gentle, many patients comfortably receive these services without the need for sedation.
