Gum Contouring


Not everyone has the perfect smile. Some are gummy – showing too much gum and thus making the teeth look smaller. Gum contouring is how Dr. Flax fixes that. Dr. Flax uses the Waterlase® Laser for a faster, virtually painless experience with all that using a laser brings – bloodless incisions, great sightlines, quicker healing time and better results.

Are you a candidate for gum contouring?

Gum Contouring is the removal of excess gum tissue to create a more aesthetic appearance. Done in office, we use no anesthesia in most cases. We do use topical and local anesthetics when called for. Dr. Flax will determine whether you are a candidate for gum contouring and configure your comfort needs to resolve the anesthesia questions.
