You may have a "gummy smile" if the upper portion of your tooth is hidden by unnecessary gum tissue. At Newton Centre Dental, gum contouring or sculpting can improve your smile by eliminating the extra soft tissue and revealing more of your teeth. Gum contouring doesn't just create a more attractive smile, but it could also improve your dental health by eliminating places where bacteria usually hides. This decreases your risk of getting periodontal disease, cavities, and infections. Make an appointment for a consultation with our dental team at our office in Newton, MA to find out more about gum sculpting.

"I had my two kids getting a FANTASTIC care from everyone at Rosenberg Orthodontics. EVERYTHING about their offices is so very welcoming and professional. Before COVID-19 it was always so nice to come in the offices and be welcomed by a true smile and wonderful coffee and cookies, during COVID-19 I always felt that my kid is very safe. Yesterday my younger kid finished his treatment with Rosenberg Orthodontist and now both of my kids have perfect looking smiles. I could not be more happy and thankful to the pleasant and professional care my two kids revived at Rosenberg Orthodontist. Now I am thinking of getting my smile shaped I to a perfect smile at Rosenberg Orthodontist."- N.B. / Facebook / Jan 18, 2022
Contouring the gums may give you a more attractive smile while also helping your general oral health. You might be a good candidate for gum sculpting if you would like to get a better smile by correcting a "gummy" look. When your gums are low, sculpting can give you an even and higher gumline. Gum contouring is also great if you have had problems with frequent infections or periodontal disease caused by bacteria trapped in large gum pockets.
What to Expect
Gum sculpting is done in our office using local anesthesia. Options for sedation may be used if you have fears or anxiety about visiting the dentist. Before the procedure, your gums and teeth will be professionally cleaned, then dried. We will then use a special laser tool to cut away gum tissue to reveal a higher gumline. The laser tool cauterizes the gums to minimize bleeding throughout the treatment. As soon as your gums are contoured, we will rinse your gums so you may enjoy your results. For most patients, gum contouring will be complete in a single appointment.
When your treatment is complete, we will give you recovery instructions. We might write a prescription for antibiotic medication if symptoms of an infection were seen in the procedure. Your gums might be red and swollen for 1 – 3 weeks; however, if you follow a good home oral care routine of daily brushing and flossing, your gum tissue will quickly return to normal. You should still make appointments for yearly dental examinations so we can check the health of your gums and the rest of your mouth.
As a cosmetic dental procedure, gum contouring isn't usually covered by dental insurance. However, Newton Centre Dental takes several payment methods. We can provide estimates of costs at your initial consultation and information on how to find medical financing to make your procedure easier to afford.
Cosmetic gum sculpting at Newton Centre Dental is a wonderful treatment for many reasons — it will improve the appearance of your smile and lower your chances of getting gum disease or an oral infection. If you would like to enhance your smile or have better oral health, gum sculpting might be right for you.
