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 give you a smile you can be proud of.

What is the Gum Recontouring Process?

Gum recontouring may be performed using scalpels and sutures or soft tissue lasers. Scalpel and suture gum recontouring can be an effective option for patients with relatively good oral and overall health. Soft tissue laser therapy is much less invasive, and this conservative solution is a great option for those patients who have a history of struggle with oral health, especially gum disease. Those with compromised immune systems or chronic health conditions may also want to consider soft tissue laser therapy rather than scalpel and suture gum recontouring.

Benefits Of Gum Recontouring

The top benefits of gum recontouring include:

The results are long-lasting.

With few exceptions, the results of gum recontouring are permanent.

The results are natural-looking.

It is highly unlikely that onlookers will notice that you have had some cosmetic work done on your smile. They will simply notice how nice your teeth and gums look.

You may become a candidate for other procedures.

Excess gum tissue can interfere with your candidacy for other procedures, such as veneers and crowns. Gum recontouring can make it easier for you to take advantage of such treatments.

You may enjoy improved oral health.

Overgrown gums may easily trap food, increasing your risk of gum disease and dental decay. Getting rid of excess gum tissue can reduce such risks and spare you from the need for future treatment.

We have been going to Somerset Dental for the last few years and are so happy that we found them. The front desk staff is very kind and attentive they know who your family members are and what’s going on. My hygienist is very caring and makes me feel very comfortable. I don’t mind seeing my dental appointments come up anymore. Dr. Somerset is amazing and her and her team show you they care.

On my last visit I was in a lot of pain that started over the weekend and I called Monday morning to see the doctor and they made arrangements for me to see the doctor that same morning. Dr. Sufia worked on my gums and cleaned out the infection and did an excellent job. I felt like a new person when I left. The sever pain that I had experienced that entire weekend was gone and I just had healing pain from the procedure that was very mild compared to what I had gone through. Thanks Doc, for your expertise and professional care. This is why I have been her patient for more than 15 yrs.
