FaQ – Gum Recontouring

Is gum recontouring a painful procedure?

With modern techniques, especially laser gum contouring, the procedure is minimally invasive and typically involves little discomfort. Local anesthesia is used to ensure a pain-free experience, and recovery is usually quick with minimal swelling or soreness.

How long is the recovery period after gum recontouring?

Recovery time can vary, but most patients can return to their normal activities within a day or two. Complete healing of the gums may take a few weeks, during which patients should follow their dentist’s advice for oral care.

Who is an ideal candidate for gum recontouring?

Ideal candidates for gum recontouring are those with excess gum tissue, uneven gum lines, or those who are unhappy with the gum portion of their smile. It’s important to have healthy gums and teeth, and a dentist can determine suitability during a consultation.
