Key Laser Dentistry Treatments

Frenectomies

Your frenula are the slender pieces of tissue that anchor your upper lip to your upper gums and your tongue to the bottom of your mouth. When these tissues are too short, they can restrict mouth movement, causing problems eating and speaking. This condition can be especially troublesome for young people who are just developing these skills that most adults take for granted. We can offer patients unrestricted freedom of movement in the mouth by precisely removing these tissues.

Gingivectomies

If your gums become diseased, they can spread infection to the adjacent bone and teeth, causing the bone to decay and the teeth to loosen and fall out. We can stop the spread of gum disease and its unfortunate domino effect by removing the diseased portions of gum tissue. Laser technology allows us to do this very precisely, excising only the infected tissue and leaving healthy adjacent tissue intact.

Crown Lengthening

If you have excessive gum tissue covering your teeth—a condition known as a “gummy smile”—you may not enjoy smiling no matter how healthy your teeth are. Your gums can overshadow your teeth, making for a noticeably unbalanced smile. Using our laser technology, we can gently remove small portions of gum tissue and reshape the remaining tissue around your teeth for a more harmonious and natural-looking smile. Crown lengthening doesn’t actually make your teeth longer, just proportional to the surrounding gums and each other!
