Gum Contouring

Gum contouring, also referred to as gum reshaping or gum lifting, is a cosmetic dental treatment that enhances the aesthetics of the gum line. It is commonly performed to address a “gummy” smile, characterized by excessive gum tissue visibility during smiling.

In this procedure, a dentist or periodontist employs a laser or scalpel to eliminate excess gum tissue and sculpt the gum line, resulting in a more harmonious and visually appealing appearance. Occasionally, a minor bone adjustment may be necessary to refine the gum shape further.
