Gum Contouring

Cosmetic Gum Contouring in Shawnee KS

When gums are symmetrical and even, they provide a beautiful frame for your teeth. However, sometimes we can develop low or uneven gums and this can detract from the appearance of your smile. Even if your teeth are perfectly straight and healthy. If you have a gummy smile or an uneven gum line, Dr. Swan at Monticello Family Dental can help.


Benefits of Gum contouring

Gum contouring can be one of the most transformative dentistry procedures, offering many aesthetic benefits. Among suitable candidates, gum contouring:

  • Can be used to remove excess gum tissue. For patients who have excess gum tissue that extends down onto the teeth, gum contouring is an ideal treatment.
  • Can be used to create a more even gum line. Among patients who have jagged, uneven gum lines, gum contouring can be performed to create more even gum lines. By reshaping the gums, Dr. Swan can reinvent smiles affected by uneven gum lines.
  • Is permanent. Once removed, gum tissue does not regenerate. When patients undergo gum contouring, they can expect that their gums will maintain their new shape. However, patients must be committed to keeping their gums clean and healthy so that they do not lose further gum tissue to periodontal disease.
  • Is extremely safe. Gum contouring is one of the safest forms of surgery, oral or otherwise, a person can undergo.

How does gum contouring work?

If you decide to undergo our gum contouring treatment, Dr. Swan will numb the area with a local anesthetic to ensure you're comfortable during treatment. Then, she will use a soft laser to gently remove excess gum tissue and create a more even gum line. Generally, we can perform the entire treatment in a single office visit and sometimes it can even take less than an hour. The length of your appointment will depend on how many teeth you want to treat.
