Diode Laser Treatment

Shape Up Your Smile

Diode laser treatment from Dillehay Orthodontics can reduce gum tissue, shape up your smile and restore your confidence.

Sculpt Your Gums

Do you feel like your gums cover up too much of your teeth? Your gum tissue frames your teeth, and Dr. Ken Dillehay and Dr. JK Dillehay can use orthodontic lasers to sculpt your gums around your teeth to improve your smile.

The best part of laser treatment is that there’s no need for needles. You'll have your gum tissue numbed with a topical anesthetic, so all you'll feel is the slight movement of the laser tip.


Reasons for Diode Laser Treatment

Impacted Teeth

Impactions are teeth that haven't erupted properly through your gums.

Dr. Ken Dillehay and Dr. JK Dillehay can use laser treatment to help your tooth erupt without extensive waiting or expensive surgery.

Ideal Bracket Placement

If your gums haven't receded properly or a tooth erupts slower than expected, Dr. Ken Dillehay and Dr. JK Dillehay can use a laser to remove your excess tissue enough to place a bracket.

Aesthetic Gingival Recontouring

After removing your braces, Dr. Ken Dillehay or Dr. JK Dillehay may recommend recontouring your gum line to help your smile look its best.

Aesthetic gingival recontouring is a procedure that reshapes your gum line to improve the aesthetics of your smile by exposing more of your teeth.

Dr. Ken Dillehay and Dr. JK Dillehay use a laser to remove excess gum tissue around your upper teeth to make them look longer.

If your gum line is uneven, aesthetic gingival recontouring can also sculpt the gum line to produce a more symmetrical, balanced smile.
