What is Gum Line Contouring?
Gum Line Contouring is the process of reshaping the gums by adding gum tissue to your natural gum line. This is a cosmetic dental procedure that adds a more symmetrical appearance to your gum line for an attractive smile. In short, you can also call it a smile makeover process.
What happens during the Gum Line Contouring Process?
Before the contouring process, your gums are inspected to determine the right way for reshaping the gum line for obtaining the best result.
If your gums are too high on the teeth, our dentist will take the graft tissue from the roof of the mouth and restore it through a cosmetic surgical process. Moreover, this graft region will be closed appropriately for progressive healing.
Is Gum Line Contouring painful?
The Gum Line Contouring process isn’t painful or invasive. It just removes the unnecessary smile to give you a lasting impression from the rest. This process is performed under dental sedation called sleep dentistry and the type of sedation generally depends on the extent of the procedure.
However, dentists often give oral anesthesia to their patients so they don’t experience much pain. After the procedure, patients may feel discomfort or mild pain that eventually brings them back to normal.
Don’t worry this is a quick procedure that will simply trim your gumline back and reveal your gorgeous teeth.
What is the condition of gums post-surgery?
Post-surgery your gums tend to be sensitive for a few weeks. Therefore you need to take extra care during brushing, flossing, and eating habits.

- There are no more open sores
