What is Gum Recontouring?

Gum recontouring, or gingival sculpting, is a cosmetic dental procedure designed to alter the shape of the gums, either by removing excess gum tissue that contributes to a “gummy” smile or by reshaping the gum line for a more uniform, aesthetically pleasing appearance. This process can significantly impact your smile by exposing more of the tooth structure, creating a more balanced look.

Our Approach to Gum Recontouring

The journey to a beautifully contoured smile in our clinic involves a series of carefully planned steps:

  1. Comprehensive Evaluation: The process begins with a detailed evaluation of your dental and gum health to ensure gum recontouring is a viable and safe option for you.
  2. Customized Treatment Planning: Leveraging advanced dental imaging, we design a personalized treatment plan that visually demonstrates the anticipated results, ensuring your goals are met.
  3. Pain-Free Procedure: Comfort is paramount, which is why local anesthesia is administered to numb the treatment area, making the procedure virtually painless.
  4. Precision Contouring: Using precise laser technology or traditional surgical methods, we meticulously remove or reshape the excess gum tissue, instantly transforming your smile.
  5. Aftercare and Support: Post-procedure, we provide comprehensive aftercare instructions and support to promote quick healing and optimal results.
