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.

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

Questions I have answered without issue and great post-visit follow upDebbie, UK, 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.

I don’t cover my mouth when I smile or laugh anymoreRogie, UK, 25 06 21

I got 10 Ceramic veneers & I have never been happier with my smile. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend it. My confidence has massively improved. I don’t cover my mouth when I smile or laugh anymore.

Dental Implants  
From as little as £1.72 per day, dental implants are a lot more affordable than you think. You may not believe me, but it’s now possible to place new dental implants in half a day. If you have some or all your teeth missing, with a bit of planning at the start, we can often place implants and place new teeth on to them, allowing you to chew, smile and feel happy about your appearance on that morning or afternoon! In addition to advanced scanning technology we also use a “Gentle Laser” to fit teeth implants, meaning your treatment is virtually painless with minimal swelling and infection.
