For those that are unhappy with their smile due to gums that that rest too high or low on your teeth, Laser Gum Reshaping is an option we offer in our West Hills, CA, 91307 dental office to correct it. Many people take wonderful care of their teeth but do not smile as much as they should because their gums make it look like their teeth are smaller than they actually are.
While many people elect to have laser gum reshaping for cosmetic reasons, there are also practical uses for the procedure. Sometimes when a crown is placed too close to the gum line, the gum can start to grow over the crown. In some instances, there can be larger issues associated with the gum that may require additional treatment. This is common when the gum is receding as opposed to growing over a tooth.
In the past, more invasive surgical options were required to correct the look of the gums. As technology has advanced, we at West Hills Smiles near Woodland Hills, CA embrace those changes that can help our patients. Breakthroughs in laser technology have allowed the process of gum reshaping to be done quicker, easier and with no pain.
A laser works by using high energy lights to remove excess gum tissue. The laser also aids in clotting, so there is no bleeding during the process and no painful stitches to worry about. The procedure can now be done without anesthesia.

This is THE place to go for your dental needs. You walk in and see their beautiful lobby that has a really big and soothing aquarium. They offer you snacks and drinks and the front desk girls always have a smile on their faces. The rooms are gorgeous! They even have those little cameras that take pictures of your teeth so you can see them (that was helpful because I had a crack on my tooth that I didn’t think it was a big deal until I saw it with the camera, ew!). The doctors are amazing. They didn’t try to sell me any treatment, but told me that their job was to educate me about oral health and my options, so I didn’t feel any pressure to proceed with anything I wasn’t comfortable with. I will come here for the rest of my life!
Just had work done by Dr. Mike Salekian today and was so impressed with how smoothly everything went!!!! I am usually terrified of the dentist (especially the numbing shots) but Dr. Mike was so gentle I honestly didn’t even feel him numbing me. He was very thorough at explaining everything so I felt comfortable the entire time. He is a very compassionate guy and truly cares about his patients. The assistant, Chris, is amazing too!! I highly recommend going to see them for any of your dental needs! You’ll be happy that you did! The front office is very accommodating when it comes to utilizing your insurance and making sure things are good on the financial side.
Recently, I was told I would be seeing a new dentist, Dr. Mike,by the excellent staff at West Hills Smile. After the first visit, I found Dr. Mike incredibly kind and very knowledgeable. We proceed with the treatment plan, and Dr. Mike continuously checked in while he was doing the procedure. Everything went fine, and it felt quick and painless. With the excellent care I received by Dr. Mike and continued support of the already great staff, I recommend this office. In my experience the staff is just as caring and willing to work with you as well. They go above and beyond, and really want to hear from you before a plan is in place, during your visit, and afterward if anything should pop up.
