Rebalance Your Smile

If your gum tissue disproportionately covers your teeth, the result is a gummy smile. The imbalance between your gums and teeth may leave you self-conscious.

Genetics are a common factor in enlarged gums; other potential causes include illness and medication.

Gum contouring rebalances your smile. By redesigning your gum line, we can help you smile with confidence.

Understanding Gum Contouring

Sometimes referred to as a gum lift, gingival sculpting, or gingivoplasty, gum contouring uses the latest techniques to improve the appearance of your gums. At The Dental Suite, we offer two highly effective treatments to reshape your gum line.

LASER GUM CONTOURING

The laser gum contouring procedure directs a laser at the gum tissue to reshape, re-contour and re-seal tissue.

Using this technique, we can also close potentially dangerous pockets between tooth and gum caused by periodontitis.

Laser contouring is quicker and more comfortable than surgical options, with a shorter recovery time.

SURGICAL GUM CONTOURING

Instead of lasers, surgical gum contouring uses a traditional scalpel instead of lasers. Gums are re-sealed using specialist dental sutures.

The Gum Contouring Process

We’ll begin by assessing the health of your gums and teeth. This helps us determine if gum contouring is necessary. If you have gum disease, we’ll usually explore other treatments first.

A gum contour procedure is typically performed in a single appointment lasting around one hour. Before we begin, we’ll provide a local anaesthetic to reduce discomfort.

We’ll then remove any excess gum using a scalpel or soft tissue laser. By removing and contouring the gum line, we’ll reveal more of the surfaces of your teeth.

After we’ve removed the gum tissue, we’ll use sutures to seal the treatment site.

Over the next couple of days, your gums may feel sensitive. During this recovery phase, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and maintain your usual oral hygiene routine using a gentle brushing style.

The Benefits of Gum Contouring

Gum contouring boosts self-confidence by redressing the balance between teeth and gums.
Removing a small portion of gum tissue gives your teeth a fuller appearance. These simple cosmetic changes help you smile, talk, and laugh with ease.

While gum contouring has many aesthetic benefits, the treatment can sometimes be clinically essential.

Advanced gum disease can cause pockets of bacteria to form. This can lead to tooth loss and deterioration of your jaw. We often use gum contouring following dental cleanings and antibiotic treatment.

Very professional team. I had one tooth refilled and a root canal treatment there. It was really worth it.

After many years researching dental work, I am so so pleased I opted for The Dental Suite. My treatment was worth every penny (the Dental Suite offers very fair finance options) and my only regret was not doing it sooner! I am absolutely over the moon with the results, my confidence is through the roof and I cannot stop showing off my new smile! Thank you so SO much!

I had Enlighten whitening, icon treatment and cosmetic bonding with Dr Sanita and Emma. They were both very friendly and made me feel comfortable in every appointment. Sarah was also always welcoming and helpful. I’m very happy with my results and will be going back in the future for more treatments 😁✨

I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the composite bonding that I’ve recently had on my two top front teeth. Dr Kiren is an absolute magician. A true perfectionist at what she does and I felt in such good hands. The practice at West Bridgford is immaculate and all the staff are just lovely. Thank you so much for helping me to have the confidence to smile again. I never in a million years thought my teeth would look as good as they do!!

I had Enlighten Whitening and Cosmetic Bonding work done, this was all complete within a rapid 2-3 months of an initial check up that I was due to attend for over a year. Dr Sanita, Emma and all other staff made me feel at ease throughout the process with the highest level of care and service. I am extremely impressed with my results and will continue to use The Dental Suite into the future!
