Gum Reshaping in Essex

Our gum contouring service is extensive, professional and cutting edge, available in our professional and modern dental surgery in Essex.

As anchors for the teeth, and protectors of the sensitive nerves that sit beneath the gum line, the gums require special care and attention just like the teeth. At Perfect Smile Spa, we offer cosmetic treatment for gums that patients may feel overwhelmed by the look of their smile. We are dedicated to all areas of oral care, including the care of an important but often overlooked part of smile health; the gums. 

Gum recession is a common problem which occurs when the roots of the teeth are exposed because the gum tissue has degraded. Receding gums is a common issue, so you're not alone if you have this problem. There are many lifestyle habits which contribute towards receding gums, including:

  • Brushing the teeth too hard
  • Flossing too aggressively
  • Clenching the jaw
  • Grinding the teeth
  • Acid from the stomach coming back up to the mouth, which can happen with certain medical conditions
  • Smoking
  • Trauma to the gum, like sticking a fingernail in the gum, which is often more common with children
  • Gum infections
  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Issues with the position of the teeth
  • Piercings

What Is Gum Contouring?

Gum contouring works by changing the height of the gum and correcting the level of the gum so it isn't uneven, and is designed to ensure you have healthy gums to complement a healthy set of teeth. Uneven gums or a ‘Gummy Smile’ can cause you to be unhappy with your smile and avoid smiling. Correcting the size and height of the gums can help transform the look of your smile and enhance your confidence. After the whole area has been numbed using local anaesthetic, the treatment is completed by a professionally trained dentist who uses special dental lasers / electrosurgery for a precise and accurate result. And it only takes around 2 minutes per tooth to do!

Here are some gum contouring before and after images from recent treatments at Perfect Smile Spa.

Painless and Quick Treatment 

What is even better is that the treatment is pain-free, extremely quick and most patients cannot believe how much it has transformed their look! We also offer oral and IV sedation for nervous patients who require further support during treatment, to ensure a comfortable experience.

The result is a smile with gums that are more in balance with the whole smile, and a dramatically improved overall aesthetic. Patients are often much more confident about their smile following treatment as our testimonials show.
