Oral Surgery

Oral Surgery in Takapuna

We offer an extensive range of oral surgery procedures from more traditional techniques like tooth extractions and root canal treatments to state of the art cosmetic laser surgery.

One of the most requested developments is a gum lift using laser surgery.

This is for people who show a lot of gum when they smile or when the gum levels need more balance to enhance a smile. Many dentists refer to gums that extend too far down as a “gummy” smile.

Ideally, the gums should appear even and smooth, and should act as a frame to complement a person’s smile, rather than as a distraction from it. Your smile is made up of lips, teeth and gums, and they should all be in harmony. This means that during cosmetic procedures we often need to correct the level of the gum. This requires a painless laser treatment that can transform swollen gums, re-contour uneven gums and give you a uniform style without sutures or bleeding.

You won’t be afraid to smile after you see the difference we can make by reshaping your gum line. Uncover the beauty beneath with gum line contouring. At practices in Takapuna and Central Auckland we will offer you a range of options to suit your budget and your lifestyle.
