Symptoms of gum disease?
Bleeding gums are one of the first symptom and if we do not treat it, the bacteria and inflammation will increase further .
If you notice any of these symptoms, contact us right away.
Laser Assisted FMD (full mouth disinfection)
The non-surgical periodontal treatment is focused on scaling and root planning which is a two sitting procedure. Laser assisted disinfection is painless and shows promising results to combat the infection. After the procedure patients are instructed to use 0.2% chlorhexidine mouthwash twice daily for two weeks.
Laser assisted gum depigmentation or gum bleaching
A procedure to lighten or remove black spots or patches on the gums consisting of melanin. A visible pigmentation is most often caused by genetic factors, but also by tobacco smoking or long-term use of certain medications. The procedure involves laser ablation techniques and is completed in a single sitting in most cases.
Laser assisted gummy smile treatment
A Lip Repositioning-Vestibular Reduction procedure involves reducing the tissue (mucosa) lining the inner aspect (vestibule) of our upper mouth to enable repositioning the upper lip down thus minimizing gum display.
It is a safe and predictable procedure with few postoperative complications (limited bruising, discomfort and swelling of the upper lip). Our patients typically experience an easy recovery.
Gingival Contouring - Laser Dentistry
Inconsistencies in your gum line are normal, but can sometimes lead to an uneven and awkward smile, making you feel self-conscious.
We use high-tech lasers (Biolase) and equipment paired with specialized training to recontour your gum tissue, leaving you with a perfect smile.
