Gum Recontouring
or Gum Lift

What is Gum Recontouring/Gum Lift?

Gum recontouring alone is considered a cosmetic procedure. Recontouring is generally not medically necessary. Most people have their gums reshaped to improve the appearance of their smile.

Some people undergo gum recontouring surgery as part of other necessary periodontal procedures, such as crown lengthening, pocket reduction, and regenerative procedures.

If your gums rest too low or too high on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile, you may be a candidate for a gum recontouring procedure.

Also called gum reshaping or tissue sculpting, this cosmetic dental procedure can even out an uneven gum line and give your desired results.

We use a laser or electric cautery to perform contouring following a local anesthetic administration.

A number of things can cause your gums to be too low or too high. Gums that cover a large portion of your teeth can make your teeth look small. This may be the result of genetics, a particular health problem, or taking certain prescription drugs.
