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?

Patients should frequently rinse their mouths, gently, with salt water. They should take prescribed medications correctly.

Rating from 37 Reviews Did an extremely magnificent job with my mouth, I finally have the smile I've always wantedEdward, US, 01 Oct 18

I first spoke to Dr Gadea and his staff in August about doing a whole mouth restoration. I needed quite a bit of dental work and was extremely nervous about coming down to Costa Rica from Long Island, New York. However, after talking to a former patient who was a friend's friend I decided to make the trip down. I emailed all my X-rays and scans down and we set up an immediate appointment for September 3 2018. Dr Gadea did a fabulous job at the price he quoted me. I couldn't be happier. I chose Costa Rica Dental because the prices I got in Florida and New York was beyond what I could afford. Dr Gadea did an extremely magnificent job with my mouth, I finally have the smile I've always wanted. The staff were very helpful answering any and all questions I had. The office was nicer than my old dentist back home, my wife came along for the trip down also and ended up having some dental work done as well. Thank you to Dr Gadea and the staff.

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 63 Reviews I had a better experience with their office than I have had in the US or FranceDavid, US, 02 Dec 18

Rarely have I written either for or complaining about a product or service. But my experience in Dr Marco Munoz Cavallini Dental Office in San Jose, Costa Rica was so good that I am taking the time to write. I was a little apprehensive about going to Costa Rica to have work done on my teeth since years before when I lived in France I had a very bad dental experience at a dental school there. But Dr Cavalini’s office was very good about communicating with us about the whole procedure. In addition, a good friend of mine has already been to his office a year before and had a good experience. I had four implants put in and when there was an issue Dr, Marco himself stepped in and took care of the matter which is what impressed me the most. I had a better experience with their office than I have had in the US or France. I would definitely give them a thumbs up.

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.

Rating from 1 Review It was the most pleasant dental experience I ever hadBonnie, US, 19 Apr 18

15 years ago I had 5 periodontal surgeries done and bridges put in. The following year my husband returned to me and had 5 periodontal surgeries plus some restoration. I am looking forward to going back real soon. The doctors and staff are just wonderful people. It was the most pleasant dental experience I ever had and was 1/10 of the cost it would have been in the US. My dentist in the US said he had not seen any better work done anywhere in the US.

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.
