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 the 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 the natural proportions of your teeth can be restored. 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.
Gum Contouring Benefits:
Greater symmetry for your gum line
An improved gum-to-tooth ratio
Reduced bleeding and swelling
The removal of excess gum tissue when you speak or smile
Virtually painless procedure
Ultimately, gum reshaping can help you reveal a bright, vibrant smile.
If you are unhappy with your gummy smile, get in touch with us today and we can provide you with further information.
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.
No! The treatment itself is not painful as we will numb the area with a local anesthetic.
The gum line will start the healing process immediately. Usually the gum line is completely healed within 2-5 days.
