A guide to gum contouring surgery
Posted on Aug 25, 2015
Cosmetic dentistry is not just about improvements and corrections of the teeth because the teeth are not the only thing that can affect the appearance of your smile. Gums which are either too high or too low can make your teeth appear too long or too small, respectively. The so-called gum recession can be a sign of periodontal disease but in most cases, gums that are not in the “right” line are a result of the genetics. But the good news is that both too high and too low gums can be reshaped by a procedure called gum contouring or gum reshaping.

Gum contouring is a relatively simple procedure and is usually performed in a dentist's clinic. Most cosmetic dentists use the latter because it eliminates the need for stitches and accelerates healing of the gums after the procedure as the laser “closes” the wounds as it cuts the tissue. The patient receives a local anaesthesia which means that the procedure itself is completely painless. It is usually done in a single dental visit because only the gums above the front teeth are removed or reshaped. The results of gum contouring are usually permanent. This means that the gums will not grow back once they are cut off nor recede when they are reshaped although sometimes a small piece of the bone at the tooth's root is removed to ensure truly lasting results.

Advantages of Gum Contouring
  • Fairly quick healing process
  • Creates a more youthful and beautiful smile
  • Can improve overall health of the gums
  • May reduce sensitivity to cold and hot foods or beverages
  • Protects the roots from decay
  • Reduces the risk of further gum shrinkage

Disadvantages of Gum Contouring
  • May require general anaesthesia
  • Some downtime involved
  • Healing can be slow, so you may have difficulty eating and drinking immediately after surgery

If you are unhappy with your smile due to too low or too high gums, gum contouring is without a doubt worth considering because it will give you that perfect smile you have always dreamt about. How much gum reshaping will cost you depends on the extent of the surgery but it usually is not as expensive as other cosmetic dental procedures although the overall costs also depend on the dentist who will perform the surgery. But you are highly recommended not to choose a dentist on the basis of the price but experience instead because the end results primarily depend on the skills and expertise of the dentist who will perform gum contouring.
