Gum Contouring

Gum contouring is all about improving the look or health of your teeth at the gum line.

Why choose gum contouring?

To achieve a beautiful smile that’s right for you, the look of your gums is just as important as the size and shape of your teeth.

You could have beautiful veneers or natural teeth, but if the shape and contours of your gums aren’t quite right, it can detract from the overall smile design.

Making these small changes can give you a much better overall result.

How does it work?

First of all, we’ll give you a local anaesthetic to make sure that you can’t feel anything. Then, we’ll carefully alter your gums. After this is finished, we’ll place stitches which we remove about two weeks later.
