Dental Laser Technology
At Bubon Orthodontics, we have the capability of contouring the gums around teeth to enhance smile esthetics! This can be done painlessly, safely and easily by the use of dental laser technology. There is no “down time” to these procedures. The use of lasers on the gums was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the early 1990’s, but many advances have been made in dental laser technology since then. At Bubon Orthodontics, we use one of the highest performing dental lasers on the market. Our dental lasers have a unique feature called ComfortPulse™ technology which is gentler on soft tissue, eliminates any bleeding, reduces the need for anesthetic and allows for rapid healing.
Look at the before and after photos below to see the dramatic effect that laser gum contouring can have on a patient’s smile!
This young girl’s gum tissue had grown over her upper front teeth. Even regular dental cleanings were unable to help reduce the gum swelling which persisted for years before Dr. Bubon performed laser gum surgery on her.
It took 2 painless visits to achieve these dramatic results! Note how much nicer her teeth look after the gum contouring. We still have to straighten her teeth with braces, but her smile looks a lot better already!
