High, receding and uneven gums can result in a smile that’s more gum than teeth – we call these ‘gummy smiles.’
Luckily there’s a non-invasive fix and can reverse the condition with a single, quick treatment.
Gum contouring, AKA the gum lift, reshapes the gums to give them a more natural shape. In just an hour or less, the treatment gets great results resculpting uneven gums, lowering the appearance of high gums and reversing receding gums.
*Typical upper arch gum contouring would cost £800. That’s only £66.66 per month over 12 months at 0% APR. Total amount repayable would be £800.
The speed and comfort of laser gum contouring make this our most popular option for getting rid of gummy smiles. The laser used in the procedure removes just the right amount of excess gum and seals problem pockets where bacteria thrive.
This patient’s gums were getting in the way of a perfect smile.
Our crown lengthening brought everything back into proportion.

We replaced the veneers and finished off with gum contouring.
In some cases, treatment may be more effective when the gum tissue is surgically removed. The process is much the same as laser gum contouring, with dental sutures used to seal the gums afterwards.
Gum contouring sounds like a drastic measure – but it’s a fast and relatively painless procedure which in most cases takes just 20 minutes to an hour.
Some patients report mild soreness or tenderness for a week or so after the procedure. This can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relief. Your Love Teeth dentist can make a recommendation and let you know how best to take care of yourself after leaving the clinic.
