Laser Gum Contouring

Having a “gummy smile,” where teeth are hidden underneath the gums, can lower confidence and ruin your appearance. Many conventional gum reshaping treatments are painful and not as effective. Luckily, Dr. Sobhi uses only the most advanced technologies in her office. The modern Laser Gum Contouring technology is a painless and simple laser procedure that reshapes the gum line, showing off your teeth and giving you the smile you have always wanted!

General Info

How the Procedure Works

Before lasers, gum contouring was done using a scalpel, causing extreme bleeding, pain, and long recovery times. Now, laser gum contouring is a painless procedure that takes little time in the dentist’s chair. To start, the patient’s mouth is numbed with a local anesthetic. Once frozen, the laser will cut away any excess gum tissue, reshaping the gum line. Any exposed blood vessels will be concealed by the laser, which reduces bleeding and recovery time. If patients are then unsatisfied with the appearance of their newly exposed teeth, Dr. Sobhi can fit you with porcelain veneers or crowns after your gum contouring procedure.


Frequently Asked

Will my gums grow back?

No. During Laser Gum Contouring, both your gums and the bone just under the gums are contoured, preventing your gums from growing back.

What is the recovery time?

Recovery is minimal. Some patients can go back to chewing, drinking, and talking like normal within the same day. However, full recovery takes about one to three weeks.

Am I a good candidate?

If you are someone who has healthy gums that take up the majority of your smile and need a little trimming, then you are the perfect candidate. For those who have existing gum problems, those will need to be taken care of beforehand. Book a consultation today to discuss your candidacy!

How long does Laser Gum Contouring take?

Anywhere between 20 minutes to 2 hours, depending on how much of the gum needs to be removed and reshaped.

I knew I had to write this review when they called me the next day to check up on me regarding my extraction. I never had this type of quality service! The extraction only took 10 minutes, the owner did then and she is just a master at extracting teeth. All I felt was pressure and discomfort. That’s it! Anyways I’d highly recommend them! Front desk is very nice as well, all the hygienist are super knowledgeable and friendly.


Love this dentist office, worth the travel!


It’s a dentist office I don’t know what else to say. Nobody likes dental work but it has to be done, and I didn’t see any shortcomings here.


Kudos to the team for their work and putting up with my shenanigans.

My best dental experience in the city are at Kingwest. The staff are very nice, welcoming and understanding. My cleaning yesterday was very comfortable and the dentist provided the right suggestions.


Will be a long time client of this practice.
