Benefits of Gum Contouring

3 Essential Procedures

Oral health goes beyond the teeth, which is why the gums play a fundamental role in the overall appearance.


Gum contouring is a set of procedures that have the objective of modifying the shape of the gums, equalizing their contour, until giving a more symmetrical and beautiful appearance.

How is a Gum Contour Performed?

Before performing the procedure, the professional in charge of the procedure will proceed to take photos and occasionally, an intraoral scan.

The contour of the gums plays an essential role in the general aesthetics of the smile and, therefore, in the facial appearance.

Is the Contour of the Gums Painful?

Gum contouring procedures are performed under local anesthesia, and in some offices.

The recovery of a gum contour can take between one and two weeks, during which the patient will be able to carry out most of their daily activities without problem.
