Solea® Smile Contouring

How the Solea® cool cutting laser has changed dentistry

Reshape Gum Tissue to a Healthy, Pleasing Level

Your gums have a twofold purpose: protect the health of your teeth and beautifully frame your smile. However, too much gum tissue can do the exact opposite of what is intended. Often called a ‘gummy smile’, excessive gum tissue can make your teeth appear short, restrict your ability to have restorative dentistry performed, and even encourage bacterial growth. At Gentle Dentistry, we offer soft tissue recontouring treatment utilizing modern Solea® laser dentistry. Dr. Andrew Spector has been performing Solea® laser dentistry for over 15 years and uses the newest, most advanced Solea® laser on the market today. Using this laser, soft tissue recontouring in Haworth, NJ, allows us to gently remove excess gum tissue to create a healthy, attractive balance between gums and teeth.

Why Receive Smile Contouring

Create a Healthy Oral Environment

When you have extra gum tissue covering your teeth, bacteria are more easily able to thrive and grow in pockets between the gums and teeth. This area is unreachable by traditional brushing and flossing and can lead to gum disease or cavities developing. By removing the extra tissue through soft tissue recontouring, we can access areas of concern to properly clean your teeth and prevent disease or decay.
