This delicate cosmetic dental procedure, often referred to as gum contouring or periodontal plastic surgery, removes just enough of your gum tissue to reveal more of your teeth. Dr. Sayeg has spent many years perfecting this technique. In addition to the aesthetic benefit of laser gum sculpting is the added bonus of the decreased risk of gum disease.

"I’ve been going to Dr. Mark Sayeg since a friend referred him almost 15 years ago. The staff and environment are first-rate. One of the things that differentiates this practice is the level of care and involvement of Dr. Sayeg. I recently returned from a trip overseas and had a tooth that had become very sensitive. They worked me into their schedule then called to let me know of a cancellation if I was able to be there on short notice. After attending to my tooth, and recommending that we NOT pursue a root canal, Dr. Sayeg personally called the following week to insure that everything was okay. A great dental practice with great people!"- M.L. / Google / Nov 22, 2019
