Do I need gum contouring?
Gum contouring is a cosmetic procedure, used in our smile makeover treatments to correct uneven gums. Patients with too much gum, too little, and receding gum are appropriate for this treatment. Gummy smile is a term diagnosed to patients with a higher ratio of gum to smile. Gum contouring can largely benefit these patients.
Receding gums can be an indicator of gum disease. If the roots of the tooth are exposed by receding gums, the tooth carries more risk of dental issues arising, such as: decay, cavities, sensitivity and losing the tooth. Gum contouring may help to slow down such issues.
Patients that receive the gum contouring treatment can benefit from: a symmetrical smile, lose their smile anxiety, reduced gum sensitivity, balanced gum-to-tooth ratio, standardised tooth size, reduced painful symptoms associated with receding gums and create better conditions for speech and chewing.
