Get Started

What is Gum Contouring?

Gum contouring or gum reshaping is a dental procedure performed by a cosmetic dentist to improve the appearance of your smile. Some people have a “gummy smile” due to the excess amount of gums visible upon smiling. It often tends to make them feel self-conscious.

The gum contouring procedure removes excess gum tissues around the teeth to create a balanced, symmetrical gumline. With the help of laser technology, there is no trauma to soft tissues, and the procedure can be completed in a few minutes.

Some cases may need extensive contouring, which our dentists will evaluate before recommending the best approach to transform your smile. Whether you have an uneven gum line, protruding gums, or a receding gum line, we can help you achieve a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Benefits of Gum Contouring

Minimally Invasive

With laser technology, gum contouring does not hurt and is a quick, painless, and minimally invasive procedure. We use a local anesthetic to numb the area before treatment, making the process comfortable.

Longlasting results

The results from gum contouring treatment are visible in a few days when your gums heal completely. And with good oral hygiene, you will have a beautiful smile for several years.

Balanced smile

Gum contouring requires precision and expertise to achieve desired results. Our experts can significantly enhance the appearance of your smile by creating a well-balanced, proportional gumline that highlights your teeth.

Improved Confidence

Gum contouring can be used with other cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers to get dramatic results and help you smile more confidently.

Improved Oral Health

Excessive gum tissue often makes it challenging to maintain good oral hygiene practices. Gum contouring makes brushing and flossing your teeth easier, reducing the risk of gum diseases and dental cavities.
