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.

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.

Have just finished my treatment for a front tooth implant. Robbie and his team have been absolutely fantastic from the start to the finish of my treatment. He has a lovely way about him, explaining in detail every procedure and stopping to ask if I was ok. I am so delighted with the results and cannot thank him enough for giving me back my smile and confidence.
