Cosmetic contouring

Your smile-line is a combination of the shape and alignment of your teeth and the relationship of your teeth with your gum tissue. An asymmetrical smile-line can be easily corrected with cosmetic contouring through the use of a laser. Front teeth that are worn, pointed, or chipped can be re-shaped converting an untidy smile into a younger looking, shapely one.

Cosmetic contouring is a simple process in which small adjustments are made to your teeth to level uneven smile lines Compared to the traditional method of using a scalpel, the laser simply vaporizes and seals the extra gum tissue with no cutting, bleeding or sutures. There is less chance of infection through laser gum contouring as the laser kills bacteria while sealing the gums. The results are healthy, natural looking gums and a brand new smile.
