Gum Recontouring is a cosmetic procedure used to create a perfect smile you can be proud of. If you have an uneven gum line wherein the gums cover too much or too little of your teeth, gum reshaping is done. Gums that cover too much of the teeth make the teeth look smaller. This could be because of genetics or a particular health problem or a gum disease. The procedure is performed conventionally using a scalpel but with technological advancement laser devices may be used to sculpt excessive gum tissue overlying the teeth. Gum contouring cost varies depending on the amount of tissue to be shaped and the technology used.
