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.

Dr Johan Hartshorne

087 550 5466 Intercare Medical and Dental Centre, 43 Old Oak Road, Tyger Valley, 7536
Rating from 22 Reviews I was pleased to have received such quality care and serviceShalom, South Africa, 09 May 17

My recommendation goes without saying and is completely unconditional. The price here is a little steep but if you can bear with that then you should definitely give them a chance. The clinic was very clean and modern looking, the staff were very friendly and I was pleased with the overall presentation of the clinic. The reception area does require a little improvement though.

Rating from 15 Reviews I was very happy with the consultationKaelan, South Africa, 04 Jul 17

I decided to the Dental Center in Century City to have a braces consultation because they were free at this clinic. I was very happy with the consultation I received from the clinic as it addressed everything I needed it to. The clinic was very good from my experience with them. Their free consultation is what drew me to them and I can vouch for them being good. I can recommend the clinic to another potential user.

Cape Town Dentist Dr JJ Serfontein

20 Kloof Street, Rozenhof Court, Gardens, Cape Town, 8001
Rating from 3 Reviews It was the quickest and most pain free dental procedure I've ever hadAnonymous, South Africa, 02 Dec 16

I chose to come to this clinic after I had a part of my tooth fall off, Dr JJ was the only clinic available to take me at short notice. The clinic itself is lovely. It's very well decorated and clean. The staff are very friendly and put you at ease. The treatment I got was good value, I had my tooth filled to restore it before it had broken. It was the quickest and most painfree dental procedure I've ever had.
