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.

Costa Rica Dental Services

(866) 260-9546 Calle 1, Avenida 6, San Pedro, Montes de Oca, San José, 2050
Rating from 36 Reviews I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea!TW, US, 20 Oct 16

It is my hope to provide the reader comfort and reassurance in making this important decision. If you are considering dental treatment in Costa Rica, please read this carefully. For many years I pursed smile enhancement and considered many options. After many attempts to whiten my teeth with over the counter treatments, and subsequent disappointments in the results, I searched for professional help and decided to meet with Dr. Gadea for veneers, I am so glad I did! Admittedly, it was concerning to travel outside the US for medical treatment. However, after researching credentials I made the decision. While in the lobby waiting for my appointment, I conversed with other Americans who also traveled to see Dr. Gadea and they shared their positive experiences. My confidence was reinforced when they stated they had returned for further treatments; it was very reassuring to me. After recently seeing my local dentist for routine cleaning my dentist complemented the work of Dr. Gadea and stated it appeared the work was done by a US dentist. When I shared the price for the work provided, he was really impressed. The value provided for the work performed is excellent. In conclusion, put your mind at ease (as much as you can), make the right choice, as I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea! Thank you, Happy Patient from Florida

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.

Dr Marco Muñoz Cavallini International Dental Clinic

(877) 519-4628 Calles 28-30, Avenida 3 bis 2841, San Jose
Rating from 62 Reviews The staff is the best, the very bestRichard, Canada, 30 Nov 17

Dr. Marco Muñoz Cavallini International Dental Clinic, everything is in a house. Dr. Marco did my entire mouth in about two weeks, would have been about nine days but had to wait for the swelling to go down from the bone graft, five implants and 27 crowns I had done. The staff is the best, the very best. DentalClinic in North America cannot even come close to Dr. Marco Muñoz Cavallini Clinic. The best, need I say anymore...

Sabana Norte, From El Chicote Restaurant, 100 mts North, 25 mts East and 100 mts North, San Jose
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.

Rubinstein Dental - Curridabat

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.

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.
