Overview

A "gummy" smile may be keeping you from expressing moments of delight or a friendly gesture. Let's make your disproportionate gums a thing of the past with laser gum treatment with Dr. Troy Gombert in Chandler, AZ. Our state-of-the-art laser allows our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Gombert, to perform procedures that will sculpt the gums and modify the appearance of a smile that is not spaced out proportionately from the gums to lips. If you are looking for an experienced dental practice to transform your gum line, make an appointment with Dr. Gombert. He will meet with you personally, take the time to get to know you and find out what you would really like your smile to look like. He may also take X-rays during the consultation as well. Once he has all the information he needs about your oral health, he can make sound decisions on how to proceed with laser gum treatments. Your experience is very important to him and his dental staff. Call and make an appointment or fill out a request form online for your consultation.

Best Candidates

Laser gum therapy can do great things for overly visible gum tissue. This treatment is for patients who want to take the focus of their smile away from the gum line. For an appealing smile, you may want more balance to the proportions and space between the teeth, gums, and lips. Regardless of why a candidate is having laser gum treatments, a consultation with Dr. Gombert will need to take place. He will examine the gums and assess what is needed to perform the procedure. Then, a treatment plan can be designed with your personal aesthetic goals in mind. If you choose to have a form of sedation that impairs your ability to drive, we ask that you arrange for transportation home after the procedure.

What to Expect

We will escort you to one of our private laser treatment rooms where you will be prepared for the procedure. Dr. Gombert normally administers a local anesthesia for laser gum treatment.  He may also advise you to have additional sedation so that you can relax. It is okay to have dental anxiety. Once you are numb and ready for the treatment to begin, Dr. Gombert will perform your treatment. Having a laser procedure instead of a traditional gum reshaping surgery will reduce the amount of bleeding and frequently omits the need for sutures. When you are ready to go home, we will provide you with aftercare instructions on how to care for your gums until the next appointment.

Recovery

Once you are in the comfort of your own home, we advise that you relax and adhere to a soft food or liquid diet for a couple of days. Your mouth may be tender or swollen during this time, which is a normal reaction to the procedure. Also, expect to have a follow-up appointment so Dr. Gombert can evaluate the healing of your gums and determine if a second treatment is necessary. If you have any question in between visits, please do not hesitate to call for further instructions.

Insurance Coverage

As soon as your cosmetic laser gum treatment plan is made, Dr. Gombert will discuss the fee schedule and payment amounts. Dr. Gombert takes several methods of payments, including dental financing. Since this laser gum procedure is elective and for cosmetic purposes, your insurance may not cover it. 

SMile Big and Bright

Your gums only make up a small portion of your smile. However, if you have ample space from the top of your crowns to your lips when you express a smile, it may make you feel really self-conscious. Dr. Gombert is an experienced cosmetic dentist ready to help you have a smile you don't have to hold back from the world. To find out more about laser gum treatments or to make a consultation appointment, contact Dr. Gombert at his office in Chandler, AZ today.
