Process and Duration
The treatment can involve multiple different aetiologies. After a thorough examination using the Global Diagnosis Protocol a treatment plan is provided. The plan may include a Waterlase treatment for crown lengthening(gum contour) that has very fast healing times because it is a laser treatment. Most cases require a single appointment to complete the gum contour treatment. The process is minimally invasive and is performed under local aesthetic. The laser is used to laser the gum back. The key during this treatment is the dentist. Dr Sheraz Aleem has a wealth of experience in cosmetic dentistry and in laser dentistry. Therefore, we are able to provide patients with a gum contour treatment that is precise and aesthetically considerate.
Since we use the latest technology, no stitches are needed and thus so we are able provide our patients with a smooth post treatment recovery. It normally takes a week to heal. However, on average most patients feel completely fine in about 3 days after the gum contour.
