Gum Contouring and Reshaping

If you lack confidence in your smile because of excessive or uneven gum tissue, we have a solution for you! Gum contouring and reshaping is an excellent option for healthier, more attractive gums.

What is Gum Contouring?

Gum contouring is a minimally invasive oral surgery that gently trims and reshapes excess gum tissue, focusing only on areas where the gums extend too far over the teeth.

Using a scalpel or laser, our dentist carefully removes excess gum tissue from an uneven or “gummy” smile. They may also reshape the remaining gum tissue if necessary to ensure proper proportions and symmetry. In some cases, our dentist may also need to adjust the position of the gum tissue around specific teeth to correct irregularities or asymmetry.

What are the Benefits?

Aside from a more attractive smile, gum contouring has long-term benefits for your oral health. Excess gum tissue can increase the risk of gum disease because it leaves deeper pockets where bacteria can hide and multiply. When removing that extra tissue, it becomes much easier to clean bacteria away with regular brushing and flossing!

Is Gum Contouring Right for You?

It’s essential to consult with one of our qualified dentists to determine if you are a suitable candidate for gum contouring. They will evaluate your specific case, consider your oral health, and discuss the potential benefits and risks of the procedure. A thorough examination and discussion will help determine if gum contouring is the right treatment to achieve your desired smile aesthetics.

We may recommend alternative treatments if you fall under the following scenarios:

  • Insufficient gum tissue
  • Active gum disease
  • Unstable oral health
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Extensive dental work
