Answers to your questions

What is gum contouring?

Also known as gummy smile reduction or gum lifting, this is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes or reduces the gum line to expose more of the teeth, improving the balance and beauty of the smile. This is especially beneficial for patients who feel they have a “gummy smile” where the gums are prominently visible when smiling.

What’s the difference between gum lifting and crown lengthening?

Gum lifting, or gum contouring, is primarily cosmetic, and aimed at reducing excess gum. It involves minor reshaping of gum tissue, mainly around the front teeth. Crown lengthening can also be cosmetic but is often performed for dental restorations. It may include gum and bone removal around the teeth to expose more tooth structure, making it more extensive.

How long does the procedure take?

Typically, the gum contouring procedure can be completed in one visit, depending on the extent of the treatment needed.

Is gum contouring painful?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during gum contouring. We use local anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure.

How do I care for my gums after the procedure?

We’ll provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure your gums heal quickly and beautifully.

Can gum contouring improve my oral health?

Yes! By reducing excess gum tissue, gum contouring can help expose more of the tooth surface for better cleaning and overall dental health.
