Cosmetic Laser Dentistry For Your Gums – Little Things Can Make a Big Difference
Laser gum surgery – Scary name, great results!
You’ll often hear or see it referred to as the LANAP Protocol – We agree, it does sound like one of those 1970’s espionage thrillers, but it actually stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure and involves a tiny flexible fibre-optic cable the rough thickness of 3 human hairs.
So how does it work?
The device is simply slipped between your teeth and with a small series of quick and painless laser-light bursts it removes any diseased gum tissue that causes gum infections, while leaving any healthy tissue intact and unharmed. As periodontal (gum) disease has been systemically linked to diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, strokes, and diabetes, having good gum health is arguably more important than having great looking teeth. Any bacteria lying within the gum area is killed, leaving healthy tissue untouched.

Boost your Smile with a Cosmetic Gum Lift
Aside from eradicating periodontal disease, laser gum surgery can also be used to enhance a smile. Procedures such as gingival re-contouring and gum sculpturing are commonly used to gently remove excessive gum tissue – ideal if you have a so called ‘gummy smile’. What’s more, it seals the area as it cuts, so there’s little to no bleeding and no need for stitches. The procedure can also be used after being fitted with porcelain veneers or crowns to give them greater enhancement but also to correct the look and shape of your natural teeth.
So whether you have…
• Excessive gingival growth
• Naturally extended gum lines causing the teeth to appear short
• Uneven gum lines or…
• Advanced gum disease
