Advanced gum treatment is a gum contouring procedure used to reshape the gums when excess gum tissue covers a portion of the teeth, making the gums look large and the teeth, small. Excess gum tissue is not a medical concern, but it can affect the appearance of the smile, sometimes known as a ‘gummy smile’, and undermine self-confidence.

Your advanced gum treatment starts with a comprehensive consultation. During this initial step, our periodontist will assess your gum health, allowing them to develop a personalised treatment plan, specific to your needs.
Our expert dental team is a specialised dental laser to precisely and gently remove excess gum tissue. The laser cauterises as it cuts which minimises bleeding and reduces the risk of infection. The laser allows for precise sculpting of the gums, revealing more of the teeth and creating a more balanced smile.
After your treatment, the periodontist will provide guidance on maintaining good oral hygiene practices. They will schedule follow-up appointments to ensure the gums are healing correctly.
Excess gum tissue covering the teeth can either be genetic or the result of a health condition. It is also a known side-effect of specific medications used to treat high blood pressure.
At Stella Dental in Stafford, we start advanced gum treatment by first applying a local anaesthetic to numb the gums, after which one of our expert clinicians will use a laser to painlessly reshape your gums. All-in-all, the procedure takes between 20 and 30 minutes.
The local anaesthetic will ensure that you feel no pain during the procedure. Your mouth might feel sore for a few days after treatment, but this can be managed with ordinary, over- the-counter pain relief.
Your gums might feel sensitive for a few days, so it’s best to be gentle when brushing your teeth and flossing. You might also choose to gargle a warm, saltwater mouth wash.
