Gum Contouring

Gum Contouring also referred to as Gum Reshaping is a technique used to reshape the gum line. Sometimes, even with the most perfect set of teeth, our Smile can be let down by our gums. If you have a low or uneven gum line, often described as a ‘gummy smile’, or if your gum line is uneven, Gum Contouring/ Reshaping will ensure your smile line looks more balanced and symmetrical. A gummy smile or uneven gum line is often concealing a significant portion of healthy tooth that once revealed can be transformative, changing the way your entire mouth presents. Your Smile can look wider, brighter and healthier. Teeth look whiter and stronger; making you feel brighter, happier and healthier in turn. A variety of dental procedures can often be enhanced by the addition of Gum Contouring, including our increasingly popular Smile Makeover and Dental Facelift. The procedure is completed using specialised soft tissue laser Technology that ensures a great end result in a short space of time. By Contouring/ Reshaping the gum we can restore the natural proportions of your teeth. There are two procedures used to achieve this, simple soft tissue gum sculpting with laser for subtle but effective improvement, or surgical lifting of the gum in more complex cases.

How much gum tissue can be removed with Gum Contouring?

The average amount of gum tissue that can be removed is between 3-4mm. Although this is not considered to be an excessive amount, it can make a huge improvement in the appearance of your smile line. If you feel that more gum tissue needs to be removed, you should consider a bone reduction procedure.

Is the Gum Contouring painful?

No! The treatment itself is not painful as we will numb the area with a local anesthetic.

How long will my gums take to heal?

The gum line will start the healing process immediately. Usually the gum line is completely healed within 2-5 days.
