Gum Contouring & Receding Gums Treatment Singapore

Gum Surgery

Excess Gums - Gummy Smile or Irregular Gum Line

Having an irregular gumline means that your gums could be too low or too high. Excess gums can be caused by genetics, underlying health conditions, or certain medications.

Gum Contouring

Periodontal plastic procedures (aesthetic gum surgery) can be performed to enhance your smile. Also, known as gum reshaping, gum contouring is a procedure that removes excess gum tissues to expose more of the crown of a tooth to create a proportionate look between the gum tissue and tooth surface. The procedure can also be used on uneven gums to create an aesthetically-pleasing gum line.

During a gum contouring surgery, our qualified dentists and experienced periodontists will numb the gums with local anaesthetic and remove the excess gum to create an even gum line. Various surgical techniques may be employed. Speak to our Periodontic Specialist to understand an option suitable for you to achieve an optimal and lasting result.

Receded Gums

Gums that are receded make your teeth appear longer. Gum recession may also be a sign of periodontal disease – the deterioration of the supporting gums and bone structures of the teeth. Various other causes, such as over-brushing, can also lead to exposed tooth roots, which may then result in root sensitivity, plaque accumulation or an uneven gum line on the neighbouring teeth. In selected cases, gum graft surgery can be performed to cover the gum recession area and minimise further recession and the loss of its underlying bone.

It is important to take note that the foundation (gums and bones) of the teeth needs to be healthy before proceeding with surgical procedures. Gum disease has to be treated before such procedures can be carried out. Each case is unique.
