Gum contouring or sculpting can transform even the gummiest of smiles and can help create a smile you’ve always dreamed of.
An uneven or asymmetrical gum line can prevent a smile from looking great. At Care Dental Platinum we can help you to get it right and achieve a better look. Whether you need soft tissue gum sculpting or surgical lifting, you will have the opportunity to design the smile with the latest technology and expertise.
What is gum contouring and who is it for?
This treatment is for those who have a low or uneven gum line, often described as a ‘gummy smile’. We can make minor changes to the gum shape that produce major results cosmetically.
By reshaping the gum line we can restore the natural proportions of your teeth. There are two procedures used to achieve this: simple soft tissue gum sculpting for subtle but effective improvement, or surgical lifting of the gum for more severe cases. This is done under local anaesthetic by using a soft tissue laser that removes excess gum and seals the cut at the same time so that there is no pain, bleeding or stitches!
