Your smile is trademark. Unfortunately, the condition of your gums determines how your smile looks.

Gum sculpting, also known as gum contouring, is the process of reshaping the gum tissue around your teeth.


If you are planning a cosmetic dental treatment or a "makeover" of your smile (smile makeover) and the gumline is uneven or you have too many gums ("gummy smile"), a reduction of the gums is necessary.

“I’ll give you a winning smile!”


Gum contouring can help solve aesthetic problems of teeth that appear too small when surrounding gums have grown over a large part of your teeth, creating the illusion of small teeth. Gum contouring removes and reshapes the extra gum tissue to elevate the gum line to expose more tooth volume and / or to even out the gum line to improve symmetry.

Gum sculpting uses a minimally invasive LASER procedure to remove and reshape uneven or excessive gum tissue without leaving a deficit, exposing only the part of the tooth that would normally be visible. The result is a healthy, natural looking and an attractive smile that increases your self-confidence and attractiveness.


Aside from the purely aesthetic aspect, gum sculpting also has health benefits. For example, removing excess gum tissue can reduce deep gum pockets, which can harbor harmful bacteria that can contribute to infections and gum disease (gingivitis, periodontitis).


LASER-application in gingival sculpture:

* Asymmetric (uneven) gum contours

* Excessive gingival tissue

* Gum hyperplasia / hypertrophy (oral condition with abnormal overgrowth of gum tissue)

* Medication-related enlargement of the gums

* "Gummy smile" (excessive volume of the gums)


Although gum sculpting is considered a surgical procedure, it is usually performed under local anesthesia. In addition, the use of LASER is associated with a low risk of infection, promotes faster healing, and offers greater surgical precision to protect the surrounding tissue from damage.

Typically, the gingival LASER sculpting requires no more than a day for healing. It's safe, quick, and virtually painless. You can resume your normal activities right after the treatment and the result is usually permanent.
