What IS Laser Gum Treatment?
At Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we are pleased to use the latest in precision laser dental technology to cosmetically enhance the appearance of the gums. Our state-of-the-art soft tissue laser allows skilled general and cosmetic dentists, Drs. Richard Caron and John Kenney, to perform minimally invasive and efficient treatment of an uneven or overgrown gumline. Laser gum treatments also reshape and recontour the gums to diminish the appearance of a "gummy" smile or teeth that look too short.

AM I A Good Candidate For Laser Gum Treatment?
There are several circumstances where laser treatment of the gums may be ideal for Tupelo, MS patients. If you have excess gum tissues covering the teeth, the laser can be employed to gently lift the gumline to reveal more tooth enamel and create a wider, more proportionate smile. Laser gum treatment may also be used to rid overgrown, uneven, or bulbous gum tissue from around the teeth to smooth and reshape the gumline. In comparison to conventional methods, laser gum therapies are less invasive and do not require incisions or sutures. The laser procedure also decreases the need for sedation during treatment, speeds healing, and minimizes recovery time following care.
What Should I Expect During Laser Gum Treatment?
Laser gum treatment is an in-office procedure at Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry that normally only requires a local anesthetic. Nevertheless, other sedation options may be available. Before your procedure, Dr. Caron or Dr. Kenney will discuss exactly what you should expect during the procedure for gum treatment. The laser cauterizes tissues, minimizes bleeding, and usually omits the need for sutures following care.
What Should I Anticipate During Recovery From Gum Treatment?
Once your laser gum treatment is complete, our team will provide you with recovery instructions before you are discharged to go home. Considering that your gums may be slightly tender or swollen, you may choose to follow a soft food or liquid diet for a few days. Keeping up with routine dental exams and cleaning visits at Tupelo Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry following laser gum therapy can help you maintain your gum health and keep your smile in great shape.
