Gum contouring is a common treatment for those who are in need of improving their smile and overall appearance. It is a quick and simple way to create the smile you have always wanted by reshaping the tissue in the gums which allows for more tooth enamel to be visible and results in an attractive and bold smile.
Gum Contouring Options and Procedures
Fortunately, your local dentist in San Diego can make this happen and personalize a plan for you depending on which gum shaping option will work best for you. Some options do not require any type of dental surgery, but rather a lightly invasive dental laser procedure for treatment.
Gum sculpting is also a very fast and simple process that is popular because it is comfortable for the patient while still resulting with excellent results and rapid healing time that is also very predictable.
5 Signs That you may Need Gum Contouring
- Teeth that appear to be small
- Teeth that appear to be stubby
- Uneven gum line
- You see more gum than teeth
- Gum inflammation or puffy gums
All of the above signs happen because the gum tissue significantly extends downwards over the teeth enamel producing very gummy appearing smiles.

Is Gum Contouring and Gum Sculpting Cosmetic Only?
This is a great question as most people believe that something like gum contouring or gum sculpting is strictly for cosmetic and appearance purposes, but in reality it will dramatically improve the health of gums, especially when periodontal disease is involved.
Gums that are inflamed become very irritating and painful over time and in certain cases where dental cleanings or extra home care result in nothing to actually treat the gum condition.
