Gum Reshaping Treatment

Gum contouring, sometimes known as gum reshaping, is a surgical dental procedure that is typically used to fix uneven gum lines. Premium Dental Turkey offers reasonably-priced gum contouring procedures conducted by our highly skilled dental surgeons.

Who Requires Gum Contouring?

Gum contouring is a largely cosmetic procedure prescribed to patients with uneven gums. If your gums are too high, too low, or receding and exposing the roots of your teeth, you will benefit from gum contouring surgery. If you suffer from a condition commonly known as a “gummy smile,” you will be able to improve the aesthetics of your smile with this procedure. 

Gum contouring can also mitigate risks caused by receding gums, sometimes an early sign of gum disease. If your gums expose the bottom half of teeth, your teeth could be at risk of decay and loss. Gum contouring surgery can be used to stall these problems in advance. 

The gum-reshaping procedure offers many benefits for patients who are in dire need of it. Following the surgery, your gums will look more symmetrical. You could also smile without any fear. Your teeth will not look too small or too large. The surgery will normalise the gum-to-tooth ratio in your mouth. If the surgery removes excessive gum tissue, you will be able to speak and chew more comfortably. The procedure is known to reduce swelling or bleeding caused by receding gums. 

Types of Gum Reshaping Treatment

Premium Dental Turkey offers two different gum contouring procedures: simple soft tissue laser gum sculpting and surgical lifting of the gum. The laser procedure is used for subtle improvements in fixing uneven gum lines. The main benefit from this procedure is aesthetic. Your smile would look brighter and more wholesome. The second procedure, surgical sculpting, is used for more complex issues, such as those caused by gum disease. 
When you come in for an initial screening, your dentist will determine which procedure is best for the current condition of your gums. The procedure itself is virtually painless and generally concludes quickly. It will be conducted in one of our clinics by an experienced dentist. 
If you want a better-looking smile, you could combine gum contouring with smile makeovers and dental facelifts. The effectiveness of such procedures can be amplified with gum contouring.
