Gum Line Contouring for a Shapelier SmileGums serve a great purpose, and a smile can be distracting if the gums are prominent. Large and thick gums make the teeth appear to be short and stubby and this is not attractive. You will find someone closing their mouth when smiling. This makes one feel uncomfortable yet smiling and laughing should be natural. This is because one feels uncomfortable with their appearance after smiling gum contouring is therefore what you need to feel more comfortable.

What is Gum line contouring?

The dentist takes you through the gum contouring process by cutting through the gum to remove gum tissue that is not necessary. The process is not invasive, quick, and also pain-free. The unnecessary gum is removed so that you will achieve that healthy and attractive smile.

Gum contouring procedure

The dentist or the dental surgeon uses a laser to contour the gums so that your teeth are more prominent to give a healthy and attractive smile. The process reveals your teeth that are hidden by the unnecessary gum tissue. The dental surgeon administers anesthesia so that the process is not painful and less invasive. The laser cauterizes and also trims sealing lacerations to reduce bleeding and chances of infections.


The recovery process requires you to keep visiting the dentist who will check if your tissue is healing. The process will take up to a week to heal. If you have stitches the dental surgeon will check the progress. The gum contouring process ensures that you get the confidence to smile. You will find that people will notice that you have an attractive smile and though it might not be easy to tell what has changed you will have gotten that smile you desire.
