Laser Gum Lift in Rogersville
If you have a “gummy” smile or teeth that look stubby, a cosmetic gum lifting or recontouring procedure from Dr. Timothy D. Gunnin may be able to give you the desired results. At Rogersville Family Dentistry, we complete these procedures using state-of-the-art dental lasers for quick healing and completely comfortable care. Contact our team to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation to determine whether a gingivectomy, gum lift, is the right solution for your smile.
Using the Micro 980 soft-tissue laser, Dr. Gunnin carefully removes a small amount of gum tissue, revealing underlying tooth structure and evening the gum line. The laser simultaneously removes excess tissue while cauterizing remaining tissue, which reduces bleeding and discomfort. In most cases, we do not need to use sutures to reattach gum tissue following treatment, so gums heal more quickly.
