Everything You Need to Know About Gum Recontouring


Are you self-conscious about how your gums frame your smile? What if there was a way to change that! Our patients are most familiar with cosmetic dental treatments such as teeth whitening, bonding or veneers.  But we also offer an option called gum recontouring that allows you to adjust your gumlines to reveal a healthier smile.

See Visible Results in One Session!

During gum recontouring treatment, your gumline is evened out as it moves from one tooth to the next with the help of a new, drawn out margin. With this process, our dentist will ensure you still have a scalloped contour around your teeth, but more of your tooth surface will be visible.

Who will benefit from this treatment?

  • People who struggle with short/irregular teeth
  • People undergoing hormonal changes (such as pregnancy or medication) that leads to excess gum tissue
  • To create more visible structure above the gum for dental options such as crowns.
  • As a therapeutic method for managing gum disease, where a portion of the root is exposed for easier access.

At Port Melbourne Dental, we have a team of dental experts who are at the top of their profession! We offer a range of cosmetic dental treatments including gum recontouring that will leave you feeling fully confident with your smile!
