What is Gum Contouring and Reshaping?

Gum contouring surgery is a procedure performed to improve the appearance of smiles. It is also called gum reshaping or gum tissue sculpting surgery. Gum contouring surgery is performed to cosmetically improve the appearance of smiles or as part of gum surgery to treat gum diseases. Nonsurgical gum shaping procedures are also performed. Traditional gum contouring surgery takes about three hours to complete and laser gum contouring and radiosurgery may take about one to two hours.    

How is Gum Contouring and Reshaping performed?

Traditional gum contouring surgery is performed by the surgeon making an incision in the gum tissue. The surgeon may remove or graft bone or gum tissue as required to give gums the required shape and size. Laser gum surgery is performed using a diode laser to remove excessive gum tissue and give them an even appearance. Bi-polar electrosurgery using a radiosurgery unit and a low current to cut gum tissue is also used for gum contouring.   

Is Gum Contouring and Reshaping painful?

Traditional gum contouring surgery, laser gum surgery and radiosurgery are performed under local anaesthesia. Patients will not feel any pain during the procedure. They may experience swelling and discomfort after the procedure.    

When can I travel by air after Gum Contouring and Reshaping?

Patients can safely travel by air a week after gum contouring and reshaping, after getting the all clear from their dentist that they are fit to travel by air.

How long does recovery take after Gum Contouring and Reshaping?

It takes a week to ten days for patients to recover from traditional gum contouring surgery and laser gum contouring. Patients will recover from radiosurgery within a week.   

What after care is required after Gum Contouring and Reshaping?

Rating from 61 Reviews The staff is very niceBlake, US, 29 Jan 17

Dr macro placed 6 upper implants and bone grafts. The clinic is very busy, but the staff is very nice, they try to accommodate best they can and all of them are always working hard. Even know they are all very busy in the office, you never feel like they don't have time for you or you're being rushed. Very pleased with Dr Marco and his team!

Costa Rica Dental Services

(866) 260-9546 Calle 1, Avenida 6, San Pedro, Montes de Oca, San José, 2050
Rating from 33 Reviews I’ve found my courage and my dentistJody, BOCA RATON, 30 Apr 18

I grind my teeth at night when I’m sleeping. This has ruined my teeth, given me headaches and damaged the Dental work I’ve already had. If that’s not enough I’ve had a disastrous encounter with an endodontist that resulted in 2 surgeries, a root canal, 2 crowns and finally the loss of the tooth. The pain was so traumatic that I’m afraid of the dentist. Thank goodness my moment of courage occurred at Costa Rica Dental Services. After careful consideration, we (yes, I was included) determined I needed 2 root canals redone (because 2 different US dentists failed to notice roots with more than 1 nerve.) A broken tooth needed a root canal (that was the reason for the courage) and 3 implants - 1 from the endodontist nightmare and 2 from root canals that couldn’t be completed without agony. (I’m wondering how many other teeth I had with 2 nerves per root.) Before I left I had a largely failed filling replaced and small worn places on my front teeth filled so I could smile. Up to this point, any exceptional dentist could have done the work I had. I have never met an exceptional dentist before but I’m sure they exist somewhere other than this office. In addition to bonding (my word not the dentists), my front teeth to fill the worn off enamel Dr. Gadea built up a tooth that was pushed behind the other front tooth and blended the effect so my crooked teeth look straight. Not straighter - straight! He also used that same bonding to make a rough line on the bottom of my teeth smooth and even. When I gasped and stared at him unable to speak from shock at my suddenly improved appearance he said,”This is what I love to do. When I get started I just have to make the teeth look better.” I have to go back to have the crowns when the implants have healed but I’ve found my courage and my dentist. I would dream of going anywhere else. In a scale of 1 to 10, Costa Rica Dental Services is a 20.

Gum Contouring and Reshaping  
Gum Surgery  
Sometimes gums are stain or are not well proportionate and it’s becomes difficult to show them in public. Having big gums, small or even too large teeth are aesthetic problems that some people face all the time and even having them healthy doesn’t mean they can show them how they would like to. The esthetic gums surgery allows you to correct pigmentation problems, get the right level to your gums and get even the space between teeth, providing your mouth a healthiest look and a better function.

Rating from 1 Review Implants and a nice smileJaime, Ontario.toronto, 21 Jun 13

8 implants and a nice smile I was very pleased with the treatment, the staff were great. Friendly atmosphere. A must visit if you are looking for a nice smile. I was working in Costa Rica and I found Dr. Rubinstein on the web. Dr. Rubinstaein works with Dr. Coslada, who in 1 hour and 15 minutes placed 8 implants in my mouth (zero pain) in both clinics. I thank them both and salute them from Adana Turkey, where I am at present.

Rubinstein Dental - Curridabat

(888) 848-7639 ext: 68582 700 mts sur de McDonald´s Plaza del Sol, Curridabat
Rating from 3 Reviews Absolutely recommended.Elena, Germany, 23 May 15

I went to Dr. Rubinstein because I had stronger tooth pain for a longer time. He suggested what to do and that really helped. The price was good and fair. He did what I needed and not too much. The clinic has very modern equipment and it is very clean and professional. The assistants are very friendly. Dr. Rubinstein is working really well. He explains a lot and replies to all the questions I had. I have been at other dentists in Costa Rica but I felt best with him. He offered some opportunities and suggested what to do. The work was done really quickly. Because I am travelling, Dr. Rubinstein offered to have my consultation at this time. And he did that. He replied to some questions I had and I am really happy about that. I can absolutely recommend him as a dentist.
