Surgical Treatment:

Gingivectomy is performed to improve the condition of the gums. It gives the gums the correct shape and form and eliminates all existing defects. It works by removing the excess gum tissue and reshaping the gums to reveal more of the tooth’s surface.

Laser Treatment:

The treatment works by reshaping the gums making them appear more prominent. It is a straightforward treatment which can be done in a single session. Laser is used to cut the gums and all the excess is removed. It also seals the vessels and does not cause swelling or redness after the treatment. The treatment is entirely painless and does not cause any discomfort. 


If completely non-surgical treatment is required and the client is looking to restore the balance between the size and shape of gums and teeth veneers will be the best option. This is the best treatment for people who have teeth that appear too small. 

The thin sheets are applied on top of the teeth which gives a natural result. The veneers will fit perfectly according to your needs and desired results as they are manufactured for your teeth specifically.

Gum Contouring (FAQ’s):

Gum Contouring is a dental procedure to remove the excess tissue covering the teeth and get a straighter and more aesthetically appealing smile. It can also be performed as part of other treatments such as crown lengthening, pocket reduction, and regenerative procedures

The procedure itself is relatively painless apart from the sting of the initial numbing injection. The locally administered anaesthesia does not however ease the irritation post-procedure and you may be prescribed medication to ease the discomfort which may last for a week or so.

The most common associated risks following gum reshaping are irritation, sensitivity, and tenderness that may last up to a week following treatment. In rarer cases, complications such as infection, gum relapse (regrowth), or gum recession may be experienced. 

Gum Contouring is generally a very safe procedure with very rare instances of most of those cases, the cause is not the procedure itself but rather the unavailability of required skills or human miscalculation/error which could have been prevented. 

Gum reshaping is a permanent procedure as the excess tissue is removed and gums can not regenerate again. The procedure therefore needs to be performed by an expert in the field as the results can usually not be altered easily.

It is important to follow proper aftercare instructions following treatment. Brushing and flossing should be done gently using a soft-bristled toothbrush and making sure not to use toothpaste that may irritate the gums.

If you feel that your gums are not properly aligned or that they can be improved using the Gum Contouring procedure, consult an expert on the subject before undergoing treatment as the results are permanent.


The rehabilitation after the treatment will be straightforward; follow these guidelines in rehabilitation:

  • Do not eat hard foods like nuts or seeds
  • If you have swelling or inflammation after the treatment, use ice packs
  • If the dentist has prescribed pain relievers, take them regularly
  • Swelling or redness at the treated area is common and should not be a cause of worry.
