Gum Contouring

Some people have teeth that look too “short” due to the relationship between their teeth and gums. This creates a “gummy” smile. A procedure called gum contouring also known as gum reshaping, is available to remove excess gum tissue to expose more of the crown of the tooth and create just the right proportion between the gum tissue and tooth surface. Even if the gum is uneven around a tooth, gum contouring can produce a consistent and even gum line that is aesthetically pleasing; resulting in a better looking smile.

Treatment for

  • ‘Gummy’ smile


  • Local anaesthetic is used to numb the area first.
  • A scalpel or laser will then be used to trim away the excessive gum.

Treatment Time

  • Usually a single visit (not including consultation)


  • Fotona LightWalker® Laser System:  With LightWalker®, the treatment process is typically shorter and more effective. It is also more comfortable for you because pain and bleeding are minimal if any.

Tooth Contouring

Commonly used to alter the length, shape or position of your teeth, tooth contouring can help make subtle changes to your smile.
