UNEVEN GUMS

Trust Wytes dentists to reshape your gumline with laser treatment.

Suitable for

  • Gums that rest too low
  • Gums that make your teeth look small

WHAT IS RE-CONTOURING OF THE GUMLINE?

At Wytes, our dentists can help you to stop feeling anxious about a noticeable gumline.

We use laser technology to reshape your gumline in one appointment.

Before treatment, patients say they feel self-conscious about their gumline. Our re-contouring treatment, which is also known as a “gum lift” can you help you to feel confident about your smile.

With gumline re-contouring from Wytes you can:

  • Stop feeling self-conscious or embarrassed about a prominent gumline
  • Experience an immediate improvement – and an immediate confidence boost

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Gumline re-contouring at Wytes

Step 1
Preparation

We give you a local anaesthetic to make sure you don’t feel any pain.

Step 2
Gum re-contouring

Your dentist will reshape excess gum tissue to reveal more of your teeth.

Step 3
Dental technology

We use a soft tissue laser to efficiently administer your treatment and to minimise recovery time.

Step 4
Tailored treatment

In rare cases, we’ll need to remove some bone from the front of the tooth root to give you the optimal long-term results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question iconIs gumline re-contouring painful?

Arrow
Answer icon

We give you a local anaesthetic so you shouldn’t feel any pain. The gums can feel sore after the procedure and we can prescribe paracetamol or ibuprofen. You can expect to be fully healed within days.

Question iconHow will this treatment affect eating and drinking?

Arrow
Answer icon

Be careful about what you eat in the days following treatment. Soft foods like eggs, pasta and soft fruit or vegetables are recommended. When your gums are healed, you can return to your normal diet.

Question iconWill the results last for a long time?

Arrow
Answer icon

The treatment should last for life if you look after your teeth and gums. In a small number of cases, the gums grow back. Our dentists can often repeat treatment in such cases.

Brush very gently following treatment. Return to your daily routine when your gums heal – and visit the dentist for regular check-ups.
