Gum Lift and Contouring Melbourne
When people smile and talk, many individuals attempt to conceal their gums in an effort to boost social confidence. Teeth don’t just define the beauty of a smile; it also includes the teeth’s surrounding structures, such as the gums and lips.
What is Gum Contouring?
Gum recontouring is required when an asymmetrical gum line on either the top or bottom row of teeth is prominent on the patient or when the gum line is lower than it should be. Gum contouring will increase the surface area and aesthetics of the tooth.
At Dental Boutique we use laser treatment to contour, compared to traditional methods that use a scalpel. Lasering allows the gums to heal efficiently, there is little to no bleeding and it is virtually pain-free.
We create a gum line that flows naturally with your smile to achieve a radiant and confident smile that will engage a strength that you may not have experienced before.
Gum recontouring is commonly an integral part of designing your smile. When a patient requires porcelain veneers or dental bonding, the size of the tooth and the low hanging gumline may need correcting in order to get the best results. This can be done on the same day to avoid dragging out the procedure.

Gummy Smile Treatment at Dental Boutique Melbourne
Aesthetic gum recontouring at Dental Boutique caters to patients that wish to counteract their extended gum to teeth ratio. We often find that people who wish to receive this treatment have suffered from insecurities, even to the extent of hiding their smile.
If the shape and colour of your teeth are correct, then the gummy smile treatment can be enough to achieve a great result. If there is damage in discolouration or shape, a combination of gum recontouring and porcelain veneers is recommended.
The gummy smile treatment is a great procedure for those suffering from any insecurities due to the aesthetics of their teeth. It is ideal for candidates that are looking for a quick fix, and we often see patients feeling elated, positive and confident due to the results they have experienced.
Is gum contouring permanent?
Gum recontouring ‘should’ be a permanent procedure; however, with inexperienced practice, there can be a relapse where the gums grow back to where they were originally.
How long does it take for gum contouring to heal?
If you choose to have an experienced and current practice perform gum contouring they will most likely use laser treatment. We have patients come in on their lunch breaks and receive the gummy smile treatment; there is minimal to no bleeding and it’s virtually painless. It may eventuate as a blistered sensation for a couple of days.
