Many things can cause your gums to appear too low or too high. If your gums cover a large portion of your teeth, this can make your teeth look small. This may be the result of genetics, a particular health problem, or taking certain prescription drugs. Gums that appear too high will make your teeth appear much longer, and this is often caused by gum recession, a condition in which gum tissue pulls back from a tooth and exposes the tooth’s root.
Not only can gum recession make your teeth look long, but it can also lead to serious dental problems such as decay and tooth loss. Gum recession may also be a sign of periodontal disease, which is the deterioration of the supporting structures of the teeth (gums and bone).
The biggest benefit of gum contouring in Turkey is helping you achieve more confidence with your smile. The ability to freely smile, and even speak, without being concerned about your gum’s appearance can be life-changing for many people. If you have been avoiding smiling because you are self-conscious about this, at Badge Clinic we’re here to help.
As a treatment for receding gums, gum contouring in Turkey can have major benefits for the health of your teeth too. When your gums recede, the sensitive parts of your teeth become exposed. This can lead to pain, sensitivity, damage, and possibly serious tooth decay. If the recession gets worse, it can expose the root of the tooth and cause bone damage. Gum reduction surgery and contouring can resolve both aesthetic and medical conditions for your teeth, helping you smile with confidence again.

Gum contouring can help to reshape or lift your gums and involves removing excess gum tissue to create a more balanced and symmetrical gum line. Here is what to expect from the surgery:
Consultation – your online consultation with our cosmetic dentist will discuss your concerns, the desired outcome you ideally want, and any questions you may have. They will assess your gums and your current oral health and determine if gum contouring in Turkey is suitable for you.
Marking the Gum Line – on the day of the procedure, the dentist will administer a local anaesthetic to numb the gum tissue and ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. This will help to prevent any pain or discomfort. Once the area is numbed, the dentist will outline the new gum line following your desired new smile.
Gum Tissue Removal – using precision tools including a laser or scalpel, the dentist will carefully remove the excess gum tissue along the marked gum line. This process may involve trimming away overgrown gums, reshaping uneven areas, or correcting a gummy smile. The dentist will take great care to maintain a natural-looking result while achieving the desired gum line contour.
Tissue Adjustment – the dentist may need to reshape the underlying bone or adjust the position of the teeth to ensure proper alignment with the new gum line. This step helps create a balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Healing and Recovery – Once the gum contouring procedure is complete, the dentist will provide aftercare instructions. You may be prescribed pain medication or antibiotics, and you should follow any guidelines provided for oral hygiene and dietary restrictions. It’s important to allow your gums time to heal and avoid activities that may irritate the area, such as consuming hot or spicy foods.

While gum reshaping isn’t medically necessary, it does improve the appearance of your smile. Many of our patients feel self-conscious about uneven gums or gums that cover too much of their teeth, which is why they ask about gum reshaping or gum reduction surgery. Gum contouring is considered a cosmetic procedure unless your dentist needs to add gum tissue or trim tissue that has grown over the top of your tooth.
Gum contouring is a simple dentistry procedure that is both painless and fast. Two methods are mostly used to perform this operation, with using a scalpel the most common technique. However, the most suitable, convenient, and easy method is to use a laser. This technique, unlike the former, is relatively faster and helps to reduce blood loss due to the incision. With the laser method, the wound seals as the cutting continues, making stitching unnecessary and helping the wound heal quickly.
There can be some discomfort, but you will be medicated during the procedure, which will reduce the likelihood of you feeling any pain. The amount of pain experienced depends on how much gum tissue is being cut away, shaped, or grafted. Additionally, the type of dental tools used in the procedure will impact what your gums feel like afterwards.
Patients do not need to take any time off work but may experience some soreness or swelling for up to a week. Over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen are often all that is needed. For the first few days following the procedure, patients should stick to soft foods such as yoghurt, cottage cheese, eggs, pasta, and cooked vegetables, and avoid anything seedy or spicy that may irritate your gums.
