Advanced Technology for Safe, Beautiful Results

For some patients, achieving a beautiful smile has little to do with their teeth and more to do with their gums. Even so, gum recontouring can be a major aspect of cosmetic dentistry for helping improve your smile. Sometimes patients’ gums appear thick, causing the illusion that their teeth are short or as if their smile is unhealthy. Sometimes, as we age our gums change in shape or size leaving you unhappy with your smile. At Wall Street Dentistry of Albertville, we offer a laser gum recontouring procedure that provides a beautiful, lasting smile. Laser gum recontouring can correct a multitude of gum issues, while providing you with a confident smile. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your gums, gum recontouring may be the solution for you.

In the past, gum recontouring surgery was not as effective or safe, plus the healing time was much longer. However, our advanced laser technology has proven to be a safe and effective method for gum recontouring. Laser treatment is much more precise and provides beautiful results. As the laser removes gum tissue, it also kills bacteria and seals the wound during the process. Laser treatment also reduces your chance of infection, results in quicker healing time, and a smoother recovery. Gum recontouring may require more than one follow-up appointment to ensure proper healing and exceptional results.  Please contact our Albertville cosmetic dentists today if you are interested in gum recontouring, or to schedule your initial appointment. Wall Street Dentistry serves patients in Albertville and Gadsden, Alabama.
