What is gum contouring surgery?

Gum contouring surgery, also known as gingival sculpting, gingivoplasty or gum reshaping, is a cosmetic procedure that involves reshaping the gum line by removing excess gum tissue. This treatment can lengthen the appearance of your teeth or even out an uneven gum line, resulting in a more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing smile.

Why do you need gum contouring?

There are many reasons why people choose to have gum contouring in Sydney:

  • Gums that extend too far down the teeth

If any of these sound like you, why not give Smile Specialists Suite a call? We can assess your gums and teeth and help you decide if this minimally invasive cosmetic procedure is right for you.

What is the procedure for gum contouring in Sydney, Newcastle and Neutral Bay?

The friendly team at Smile Specialists Suite are here to guide and support you through laser gum contouring, from your consultation right through to your full recovery.

Consultation and pre-surgery

We start with a comprehensive consultation to assess your gums, teeth and smile. We will discuss your goals, medical history and current oral health and determine if gum reshaping and contouring is right for you.

Gum contouring surgery

The procedure for laser gum contouring involves using a local anaesthetic to numb the area and then a laser to remove excess gum tissue. The innovative laser technology means there is no cutting or stitching involved and makes for an almost completely painless procedure.

Recovery and aftercare

The recovery process from gum surgery is relatively straightforward and quick. Once the local anaesthesia wears off, you may notice a little pain and some swelling, however, these generally settle within the first few days. We recommend you avoid extremely hot or cool foods and spicy foods for a few days as your gums may be sensitive.

We will provide detailed pre and post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth healing process, including oral hygiene practices and what you need to avoid until you are fully recovered.

Frequently Asked Questions

A gum contouring procedure is considered a permanent method of removing excess gum tissue. The gum reshaping and contouring results should last a lifetime, provided you follow the advice of your periodontist or dental surgeon.

A general dentist typically cannot perform gum reshaping procedures as they are not trained in dental surgery. Instead, you should find a periodontist or dental surgeon who has the required skills and training to perform oral surgery.

You won’t feel the procedure itself as you will have a local anaesthetic before the surgery to numb the area. You may have some gum sensitivity during the recovery process, however this is usually minimal.

Healing times can vary, depending on the individual. Most people will feel back to normal within a few days or a week, with complete recovery and healing taking approximately two weeks.

There are some disadvantages to gum surgery, such as:

  • Temporary swelling or discomfort post the procedure
  • The risk of infection, although this is greatly reduced due to the minimally invasive nature of the laser gum surgery
  • Possible increased gum sensitivity

A gum grafting procedure adds gum to your existing gum tissue and is designed to treat receding gums, whilst gum contouring removes excess gum tissue to treat gummy smiles.

Gums don’t re-grow after being removed during your gum reshaping surgery. This procedure is a permanent method of treating excess gums. Please contact Smile Specialist Suite to discuss this procedure and how it may help your gummy smile.
