    What Is Gum Contouring?

    Gum contouring, also known as gingival sculpting or gingivectomy, in cosmetic dentistry is a procedure used to reshape the gum line. This treatment is for those who have an uneven gum line or who feel their gums either cover too much of their teeth (making the teeth look short) or recede, making the teeth look too long.

    During dental gum contouring the tissue is either removed or added. Gingival reshaping is a solution to receding gums or an overly gummy smile. It may also benefit oral health by making it easier to clean the teeth and gums, thus reducing the chances of periodontal problems. It is often performed alongside other cosmetic procedures, such as the placement of veneers or crowns, for a complete smile makeover.


    Who Should Get Gum Contouring?

    If you are not fully satisfied with how your gums or smile look, then a dental gum contouring procedure is a great option. It doesn’t matter if they sit too high or low, we can completely reshape your gums.

    How Does Gum Contouring Work?

    At Advanced Wellness Dental Center, we use state-of-the-art high-powered lasers to remove gum tissue around your teeth. We use ablation instead of excision, which shortens your recovery time and eliminates the chance of infection.

    To fix receding gums, we take excess tissue from the roof of your mouth, which is used to cover the exposed tooth. Your gum is then extended over the graft.

    Gum Contouring
    1 Consultation

    Gum contouring starts with a consultation, where the dentist evaluates your dental health and discusses the desired outcome.

    2 Gingival reshape

    Using specialized laser the dentist carefully trims away excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth or teeth, creating a more balanced, symmetrical look.

    3 Gingival recovery

    Recovery from gum contouring is typically straightforward, with most people experiencing mild discomfort that can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

    I felt miserable last couple years. One day I had a chance to tell. Dr. Boris my concerns. He found 2 dead teeth. I’ve followed his recommendations for 3 months. Now I feel totally different: no inflammations, scores throw and much more energy. Dr.Boris, I appreciate your professionalisms! Thank you very much!

    Dr. Boris and his staff are really nice. They explained everything to me in a way that was easy to understand and didn’t make me feel bad for not going to the dentist in a while.
