Gingival Contouring In Hanover, PA

Repair Your Gum Line

If you want to change the appearance of your gum line, or if you feel insecure about how your gums look, gum contouring is a process that can help you perfect your smile.

Why gingival contouring? 

Everyone has a different gum line. You may have a high or low gum line. Some people have an uneven gum line. You may feel your gums aren't as attractive as they could be. While you could feel your teeth are perfect, how they sit in your gum can make you feel self-conscious.

You may have had orthodontic work that has resulted in your gums looking different. In some cases, your gums can cause problems with your oral health. While gum contouring isn't usually medically necessary, if you are struggling with periodontal disease, gum contouring can help solve your problem.

How does gum contouring work?

Our gum contouring typically takes place in one visit. You will have local anesthesia to numb the area we treat. Generally, it takes 1-2 hours for the procedure. Your gums will be cut and contoured using a soft tissue laser. This can lead to some tenderness.

Dr. Diana and her highly-trained team want you to feel as comfortable as possible. Your recovery may take a few days or weeks, depending on the extent of your surgery. Our advice is to eat soft foods for 2-3 days after your procedure. We provide follow-up care, and our team is on hand to answer any questions. We check in with patients a few days or a week after having gum contouring.
