Modern technology has provided dentists with some excellent methods to resolve certain conditions. One of those is gum contouring, a procedure used to remove excess gum tissue. Because the process is completed with a laser, gum contouring is quick and simple, and healing time is minimal.

Dr. Argandona is pleased to offer gum contouring services to her patients from throughout the Leander, TX, and West Lake Hills, TX, areas.

Do You Need Gum Contouring?

The process of contouring gum tissue is useful for a variety of issues. People who have a “gummy smile” – i.e., patients whose gums come too far down on their front teeth – are often impressed by how different their smiles appear after the laser procedure.

Gum contouring is also used for impacted wisdom teeth, as well as to remove excess frenum tissue (the gum tissue that connects the gums to the upper lip).


Because a laser is used, the gum contouring procedure is remarkably fast and easy. The patient usually feels very little if any discomfort; bleeding is minimal; and recovery time is short. Many of these procedures can be completed in a single trip to one of our offices.

Of course, gum contouring may not be right for every patient. If you are wondering whether or not this procedure would work for you, schedule an appointment to discuss it with Dr. Argandona. She can help you decide whether or not you would benefit from gum contouring.

Great experience at Live Oak in Leander! Friendly staff, the Dental Hygienist Janine was great and very sweet. The dentist Priscila Donangelo was amazing – very knowledgeable, attentive, explained me everything that was going on and need to be done.

Dr. Argandoña and Dr. Donangelo are both great dentists and are also very caring. They are thorough but not pushy and they try to explain everything very well. I have also found both of them to be gentle, warm and compassionate, as well as accessible when I need them!
