What Is Gum Recontouring?

Gum contouring is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves reshaping or removing excess gum tissue with the use of laser technology.

A laser is used in gum surgery to gently remove and seal excess gums without any bleeding, which means no cuts or incisions.

In fact, the entire gum lift process is completely painless. Gum surgery is typically only done on the front teeth.

Contouring your gums can make a dramatic difference on the overall balance and look of your smile.

What is the gum contouring Procedure?

Below is a basic outline of how the gum surgery procedure works.

1. Before a gum lift is done, local anesthesia must be applied to the gums in order to numb them.

The type of sedation you receive for gum surgery may vary depending on factors such as dental anxiety.

2. Gum surgery involves a laser light that will be focused on areas of excess gum tissue.

The laser will reshape the gums.

3. This gum lift procedure typically takes around twenty to thirty minutes, and recovery is immediate since the laser is sealing the wound as it removes the excess tissue.

There is absolutely no need for stitches with gum surgery.

There are problems that can delay the gum lift operation.

Occasionally, patients may have a significant amount of bone growth in their mouths as well.

An excess amount of bone growth will get in the way of the gum lift procedure, so bone recontouring will have to be done together with gum surgery.

After either of these operations, veneers may be fitted depending on the condition of your teeth to give your teeth a brighter, more natural smile.

Quality is never an accident; it is the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”

Is it necessary to undergo A Gum Lift?

An excessive amount of gum tissue will not cause any medical problems for you in the future, but it does alter the smile in a way that makes it appear lopsided or uneven.

Gum surgery is the only way to fix this dilemma.

Although you can ignore this problem and still be in good health, it can affect the way you look.

It is only natural for us to feel self-conscious about how we look which is why a gum lift (if necessary) is exactly what is needed in order to smile with confidence.

3 Things To Know About Gum Surgery

What causes a Gummy Smile that requires a Gum Lift?

There are people who show an excessive amount of their gums when they smile.

Severe cases of gummy smile may make it near impossible for people affected with this condition to close their mouth completely.

Genetics play a major role in the cause of a significant amount of gums, but other factors include long maxillary alveolar bone, misaligned teeth, short lips, gum disease, and protruded teeth. 

Recontouring your gums with gum surgery can make a dramatic difference on the overall balance and look of your smile (see smile gallery).

What is the Cost of Gum Recontouring?

The cost of a gum lift or surgery ranges form 1500.00 to 3000.00

There are several factors that can affect the final price of the gum lift procedure. These include:

1. The type of anesthesia used in the operation.

2.Extent of work that must be done.

3. Bone reduction may be needed before the gum surgery can be done.

Post-Operative Gum Lift or Contouring Care:

Although the recovery rate for gum surgery is almost immediate, the gums may still feel a bit sensitive for a few days after. If this is the case then be sure to rinse with warm salt water to help quicken the recovery process. Avoid extremely hot, cold, or spicy foods after a gum lift as well.

Your Smile is Full of Potential.

Naturally you should brush and floss twice daily unless we recommend otherwise.

Floss very gently for a few days after the gum lift to avoid irritating the gums.

There are a few risks that come with a gum lift, so if gum swelling or bleeding occurs then contact us immediately.
