Gum Recontouring FAQ’s

What causes these gum issues?

Some gum issues are genetic but some other problems take place due to the non-genetic factors. If the gum covers a large portion of the teeth and makes the teeth look smaller, it can be a result of any medicine or health condition. If the gums are too high, the teeth will look longer than normal. This issue can be due to gum recession. Such kind of issues can be solved by taking our gum contouring treatment.

How do you contour the gums?

The shape of the gum can be changed through gum contouring. A dentist can cut excessive gum tissue or restore the gum tissue to get aesthetic results. The gummy smile and the gum recession problems can easily be treated using this technique.

What are the possible side effects?

There are no permanent and major side effects and the healing process would be fast. The patient will soon become absolutely normal. The swelling, bruising, and any discomfort will be slight and bearable.

How does this differ from tooth contouring?

In teeth contouring, the size and shape of the teeth are improved. On the other hand, the gum contouring is totally different. It is a surgical treatment that reshapes the gingival tissue and the gum line.

Does contouring treatment hurt?

If the laser is used, the pain and discomfort will be negligible. If scalpels are used, the pain and discomfort will be more than the laser. There can be some bearable pain; that is why the surgeon will first administer local anesthesia before the procedure starts. The amount of pain and discomfort depends on how much gum tissue is being shaped, grafted, or cut away.

How long will the results last?

The treatment delivers promising results and the patient will be able to perform routine activities during the recovery period. The patient will be able to speak, laugh, and smile. The results of gum contouring would last longer if you take the right care.
