Gum Recontouring Frequently Asked Questions
- What is gum contouring?
Gum contouring, recontouring, or reshaping, is a procedure that permanently changes the shape of your gums. It can be used to reduce the gum line by cutting away the extra amount or it can be done to restore lost or receding gum tissue. The procedure is done for both cosmetic and health purposes, depending on the case.
- How long does gum contouring or recontouring take?
The procedure does not take too long to perform but each case is different it depends on the area being operated on. You should set aside around three hours for the appointment, and then the rest of the day to rest from the procedure.
- How long is recovery after the contouring procedure?
Recovery time can range from five to ten days, depending on how extensive the surgery was and your own immune system. During recovery, it is important that you rinse with salt water after meals and stick to a soft food diet such as pudding and broth.
- Will my dental insurance cover the procedure?
In many cases, this is considered cosmetic surgery and is not covered by most insurances although it may be covered under a care plan. In some cases the procedure is required due to gum disease and your insurance will probably cover gum surgery in that situation. Come in and discuss your options if you think you may need gum contouring for any reason.
