Gum Contouring

What is gum contouring?

Here at The Waterside Dental Clinic we can correct your smile if you are unhappy about the amount of gum tissue that shows.

Too much gum, uneven gum levels or gum recession can detract from an otherwise great looking smile.

Since our lips frame the smile they too play an important role in your smile's appearance. The lips and gums should be in harmony. If your lip comes up too much it may give you a “gummy smile”.

The solution is to reshape the gums to reveal more of your teeth. Artistic sculpting of gum tissue can make a dramatic improvement in one's smile. The healing time is very rapid and predictable.

Why would gum contouring be suitable for me?

Gum contouring is a way of achieving symmetry of tooth proportions and gum line. It is a perfect option if you are suffering from:

  • Teeth that appear too short or too square
  • Teeth with gum recession
  • Uneven gum line
  • Excessive gum on display when smiling (so-called ‘gummy smile’)
  • Gaps between the teeth that will be closed with cosmetic dentistry
  • Teeth with gum disease
