Post Orthodontic

Sometimes after orthodontic treatment, the patient may be left with overgrown, thickened tissue. This can cause the teeth to look shortened or "gummy", and can also cause soreness in the gums. This makes it hard for the patient to brush and floss as they should and sometimes causes insecurity with your smile.

With the latest technology, we can minimize discomfort associated with excess tissue growth and make the gums more esthetically pleasing around your newly straightened teeth!

This procedure is non-invasively done with the WaterLase laser to make for quick results and quick recovery.

Although the teeth have been straightened, they still may appear slightly smaller and the gums a little puffy.
