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.

Bi-polar electrosurgery using a radiosurgery unit and a low current to cut gum tissue is also used for gum contouring.

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 14 Reviews My wisdom removals was a breezeOmar, South Africa, 10 May 16

I booked myself for a general checkup by the dentist, this was my first trip to the dentist in a few years. I was received by Dr.Khan who then advised that i would need to have my wisdom teeth removed. Overall experience from the receptionist right through to Dr Nazier Natha and Luqmaan was excellent. Family and friends made a big deal about having wisdoms removed and that i should rather do it in theatre, but after my consultation with Dr. Natha he assured me that i was in good hands. My wisdom removals was a breeze, Dr. Natha made me feel totally comfortable as he knew i was a bit concerned. Thank you Kromboom Dental
