What is Esthetic Gum Contouring?

Esthetic Gum Contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves reshaping the gum tissue to enhance the appearance of the smile. The process involves removing excess gum tissue and sculpting the gum line to create a more balanced and symmetrical look.

Who is a Candidate for Esthetic Gum Contouring?

Individuals who are self-conscious about the appearance of their gums, or who have gums that interfere with the appearance of their teeth, may be good candidates for gum contouring. Our team of dental professionals at ROC Perio & Implants in Rochester, NY can help determine if gum contouring is the right option for you.

How is Esthetic Gum Contouring Performed?

At ROC Perio & Implants in Rochester, NY, we perform esthetic gum contouring using a soft tissue laser. This advanced technology allows for precise and gentle reshaping of the gum tissue with minimal discomfort and faster healing times. During the procedure, our dentist will carefully remove any excess gum tissue and sculpt the gum line to achieve the desired appearance.

Is Esthetic Gum Contouring Painful?

Esthetic Gum Contouring is typically performed using a soft tissue laser, which minimizes discomfort during the procedure. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, but this is typically short-lived and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Recovery After Esthetic Gum Contouring

Most patients experience only minor swelling and discomfort following gum contouring and are able to return to their normal activities within a few days. Our team at ROC Perio & Implants in Rochester, NY will provide you with post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery.
