Gum Contouring

Gum contouring is an aesthetic treatment offered at our Castlegar practice to enhance the appearance of a patient’s gum line.

Average procedure time: 0.5 hours

If you have a “gummy” smile, an asymmetrical smile, or have declining gums as a result of an existing condition, you may opt for a professional gum contouring treatment from our dentist at Kootenay Family Dental to shape your gums to match your ideal smile. We offer a low-impact treatment, using state of the art technology to deliver an enhanced gum line to our patients in a short, one hour procedure.

What technology is used?

Gum contouring is a laser therapy treatment, using the most high-quality tech available to carry out the operation. Compared to traditional methods, laser therapy is minimally-invasive, has little risk of complications, and reduces the time it takes for a patient to recover from the treatment. Usually only taking a couple days, rehabilitation is mild – slight swelling and tenderness are the only symptoms, and are easily amended by an over the counter pain reliever.

“As always, the staff at Kootenay Family Dental made my visit a breeze. They are always so polite and willing to help in any way possible to make their patients comfortable.”
