Gum contouring candidates are typically patients who have had orthodontic treatments. Sometimes patients have a condition called gingival hyperplasia, where the gums overgrow the teeth and look puffy. Other cases have uneven looking gums or a gummy smile.
Gum contouring creates a nicer, more even gum outline. The gum shape is accomplished with a soft tissue laser. The laser gently removes or shapes the gum without any pain. The results are immediate, and the gums heal and look great within a few days.
