Beautiful smiles can often be distorted by gums that rest too high or low on your teeth; even individuals who take great care of their teeth can suffer from asymmetrical gum tissue, leaving them feeling self-conscious, and reluctant to laugh or smile.

Gum recontouring, also known as gum lifting or gum sculpting, is an effective way of treating such gums, giving them a more balanced appearance. Dr Sofia is one of the few dentists in the UAE who is able to offer laser re-shaping to ensure you get your perfect gumline – and therefore smile!

How does it work?

In the gum recontouring procedure, a laser will be used to remove any excess gum tissue, and smooth out the uneven gum line. The precise laser beam will help re-contour the gum, without affecting surrounding teeth and gums.

Is the treatment painful?

No. By using a range of different range of lasers treatment will be pain-free. Typically there is no post operative pain, no swelling, no bleeding and the patient can have this procedure done and continue with their everyday life without any postoperative restrictions, even stitches!
