Gum Reshaping

Gum Reshaping – Reshapes or Re sculpts your Gum line – Smile Makeover

If your gums rest too low or too high on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile, you may be a candidate for gum contouring surgery. Also called gum reshaping or tissue sculpting, this cosmetic dental procedure can even out an uneven gum line and shape your smile you can be proud of.

If you have a low or uneven gum line, often described as a ‘gummy smile’, or if your gum line is uneven, then gum sculpting can transform even the gummiest of smiles and help create a smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Gum contouring may be combined with other cosmetic treatments such as teeth reshaping and bonding to repair damaged teeth, change tooth discoloration, at low cost and less time.

In tooth reshaping small amounts of tooth enamel ( the outer covering of the tooth) is removed in order to change the shape, length, or surface of one or more teeth. Read more about Teeth Reshaping.

Dental bonding is a low cost cosmetic procedure in which a composite resin is used to repair chipped or cracked tooth, fill small gaps between teeth, and change discoloration yellow stained teeth. Read more about Dental Bonding.

Procedures for Gum Reshaping

By reshaping of the gum 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.

We use gum contouring to remove excess gum to improve the look of uneven gum lines or gummy smiles. With this type of treatment it really does depend on how much excess gum is showing as to which treatment would be most suitable for you.

Surgical Gum Lift

If you are looking to just take away a millimetre or so of gum then the gum reshaping treatment is quick and easy and takes a matter of hours to heal. Any more than approximately two millimetres of gum would require a different treatment altogether – a surgical gum lift, and the healing time is much longer – usually three to four months.

Gum reshaping is usually done in conjunction with veneers treatment, as the gum is likely to just grow back down without them. What can sometimes happen is that when the gum is taken away the tooth underneath is also likely to be a bit more yellow in color than the rest of your teeth too, so you need to be aware of that.

Procedure Cost

The cost of simple gum sculpting is less then the surgical gum lift, and veneers would definitely be required in this case as the teeth will be more unsightly after removing so much gum which may cost extra.

Gum Line Contouring

For those clients with low or uneven gum levels a laser gum reshaping treatment can correct this. If a client has a gummy smile a painless gum lift can be offered.

Improve your smile with gum line contouring. If you have uneven gum levels or a ‘gummy smile’, we can use our laser to remove excessive gum tissue and improve the look of your front teeth. The laser does not cause bleeding gums as it seals the gum at removal.

Gum lift is a cosmetic dental procedure that raises and sculpts the gum line to improve the aesthetic appearance of one’s smile
