Gum Sculpting & Contouring London
Uneven gums or too much gum showing when speaking or smiling (gummy smile) can affect your smile and look unsightly.
This can affect your confidence and be embarrassing at times.
If this situation affects you there are options available to you that can reduce or eliminate this problem.
We use a laser to reshape the gums to reduce the number of gums visible on either a single tooth/ area or on multiple teeth/ areas.
This is especially useful when trying to create a symmetrical outline of the gum.
The treatment is comfortable with instant healing and can the procedure can take from a few seconds to a few minutes depending on the number of areas that need treatment.
Achieving a beautiful smile has never been easier.
We aim to provide the best smile to you. Many people have a gummy smile or uneven gum levels.
With our advanced laser technique, your gum can be reshaped, which will improve the overall appearance of the teeth and hence the smile.
If your gum line is very uneven or if you show too much gum when you smile then gum reshaping (also known as gum contouring or gum lift) could be for you.
With gum reshaping your smile will look more balanced and symmetrical. The gum lift procedure can be carried out quickly and painlessly with an advanced special laser.
Gum reshaping produces excellent results on its own or is very often used with other treatments such as porcelain veneers or our very popular smile makeover.
There are a few scientific parameters when reshaping the gums. It is desired that:
The height of the gum for the central incisor and the canine be the same height.
The height of the gum for the lateral incisor be 0.5mm shorter than the central incisor.
- With a gum lift or gum reshaping the balance, symmetry and tooth proportions of the teeth and smile will improve.
- Your gum health can also benefit from this procedure since the laser treatment sterilises the gums from any bacteria.
- Short teeth can be made to look longer.
- The amount of gum showing on smiling can be reduced or eliminated.
- The results are immediate.
- Healing just takes a few days.
- The procedure is completely safe with no side effects.
At our practice, a highly experienced dentist will assess and plan on what is best for you. Most people can undergo this simple procedure with no side effects.
How do you plan and design my treatment ?
The process starts with a FREE discovery consultation where we discuss your needs and requirements with a Computerised Photographic Assessment to help you understand the possibilities.
Depending on your requirements we can customize and tailor-make individual treatments plan to suit your needs and budgets.
You can opt for simple procedures to more complex involved treatments plans to produce your beautiful new smile.
Our aim is to answer your questions and provide you with advantages and disadvantages.
We can also provide you with a computer-aided smile analysis and a hand-crafted Trial Preview, to gives you the opportunity to see your smile before we even touch your teeth.
We also use Bite Analysis technology to ensure a long-lasting, comfortable and a healthy final result.
Another option to target aesthetic dental issues is cosmetic bonding.
This is a simple, effective and pain-free treatment to improve your smile.
Cosmetic bonding is appropriate for those who have chipped or worn teeth - and will leave your smile looking charming, attractive and appealing.
Your dentist will use bonding material known as a dental composite to reshape individual teeth, close gaps between the teeth and build up worn edges.

I have had an excellent experience having my teeth done here. The staff are all lovely and Dr David Bloom is exceptionally good, explaining everything, making suggestions and the finished work was beyond my expectations. Crucial to my treatment was a referral to the periodontist to address gum disease that was present. I can happily recommend Dr David Bloom and his team as the standard of the work is superb. I am very happy with the work undertaken.

I had a great experience. I was made to feel so comfortable by the team and Dr Sam took time to explain the whole process. I had veneers fitted. I highly recommend them.
