Gum Contouring

Gum Contouring

There are a few reasons why you might need gum contouring. One reason is for aesthetic purposes. If you have uneven gums, or if your gums are too large, gum contouring can help give you a more even and symmetrical smile. Another reason you might need gum contouring is for functional purposes. If your gums are too large, they can actually get in the way of biting and chewing properly. Gum contouring can help to fix this problem and allow you to eat and speak more easily.


Finally, gum contouring can also be used to treat periodontal disease. If you have gum disease, your gums may be swollen and inflamed. Gum contouring can help to reduce the inflammation and help you get your gum health back on track.


If you’re considering gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, it’s important to know that the results are usually permanent. Once your gums have been removed, they can’t grow back. As with any cosmetic procedure, there are risks involved. But if you take good care of your teeth and gums before and after the procedure, you can help minimize the risks and maximize the chances of successful gum contouring.


Before undergoing gum contouring, be sure to brush and floss regularly. This will help remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums, which can lead to infection. If you have any existing dental problems, such as cavities or periodontal disease, be sure to get them treated before you have gum contouring done.


After your procedure, you’ll need to take care of your teeth and gums to ensure they heal properly. Brush and floss regularly, and see your dentist for regular checkups. If you notice any redness, swelling, or bleeding in your gums, be sure to contact your dentist right away. With proper care, you can enjoy your new smile for years to come.

Get The Smile You Want

All Smiles Dentistry offers a number of gum contouring procedures to help patients achieve their desired smile.


Gum contouring, also called gingival sculpting, can be a truly beneficial way of getting your gums reshaped to improve the appearance of the teeth. Gum contouring can be used to correct a number of different issues, including:

  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Uneven gum line
  • Excess gum tissue
  • Misshapen teeth


Gum contouring is usually performed using a laser. This allows the dentist to precisely remove excess tissue and shape the gums to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Recovery from laser gum contouring is typically quick and easy, with most patients able to return to their normal activities the same day.
