Traditional gum contouring surgery takes about three hours to complete and laser gum contouring and radiosurgery may take about one to two hours.

Questions I have answered without issue and great post-visit follow upDebbie, Dunfermline , 06 10 19

After quite a stressful journey to Glasgow, Alisha (the Co-Ordinator) offered to meet me without asking, as I was quite lost. (I have no sense of direction!). Made to feel at ease, and had complimentary x ray and CT scan to see what treatment was possible for dental implants and upper denture. Wow, how the advancement in dentistry certainly has advanced! The Clinic is beautifully clean, the staff extremely kind and understanding of my dental phobia. Questions I have answered without issue and great post-visit follow up. Highly recommend you consider this Clinic before committing elsewhere.

Throughout this treatment, I have nothing but praise for all the staffUrsula, UK, 10 05 18

My treatment at Carisbrooke was over a period of 2 1/2 years and throughout this treatment, I have nothing but praise for all the staff. When I was told by my own dentist I would need an implant, I was quite nervous and chose to have my treatment at Carisbrooke. After reading about the practice online and after a consultation explaining what my treatment involved, I felt very at ease. A big thank you to Tariq Idrees Usman Qureshi & Robert Adams the treatment I received from you guys was first class. A big Thank you also to the dental nurses and the reception staff who are all so friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend Carisbrooke Dental Practice.

Gum Contouring and Reshaping from £187
Over the years the gum contour around the front teeth in particular becomes uneven, with some teeth looking longer at the gum line than others. Reshaping with our LASER enables a much better profile, perfect when having new crowns and a smile
Gum Surgery from £187
If the pockets of disease around a few teeth will not resolve, some gum surgery may be required so that unreachable areas can be cleaned more effectively and be allowed to heal
