Beautiful smiles can often be distorted by gums that rest too high or low on the teeth. Even if patients take great care of their teeth, they can still suffer from gum tissue symmetry problems, leaving them feeling self-conscious and reluctant to laugh or smile.
Gum contouring, also known as gum recontouring, gum lifting, or gum sculpting is an effective way of getting rid of extra gum tissue for a more balanced appearance.
What is Gum Recontouring?
Gum contouring is a cosmetic procedure that can alter the shape of the gums. This procedure can be used for removing excess gum tissue to improve a gummy smile. Moreover, it can restore the receded gum tissue, responsible for showing more than regular teeth.
Gum contouring is a cosmetic procedure that helps reshape the gums. In this treatment, a dentist can either remove the extra gum tissues that are causing a gummy smile.

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.
