Gum contouring is a cosmetic procedure that can change the shape of your gums.
A dentist can use this procedure to cut away excessive gum tissue that is giving you a “gummy” smile or to restore gum tissue that has receded and is now exposing too much of your teeth.
Is gum contouring painful?
No, you are numbed with local anesthetic and made sure that you can’t feel anything.
The procedure is done using a soft tissue diode laser which promotes healing of the gums as it is being cut and contoured. There is very little to no bleeding and the healing is very fast (1-3) days.
The best part is that you can see immediate results.
