What Issues Can Gum Contouring Address?

Uneven Gum Line

Excess gum tissue can cause your teeth to look crooked and unbalanced. A dental laser helps achieve a more proportional appearance.

Gummy Smile

Do too much of your gums show when you smile? Gum contouring removes tiny amounts of tissue to reveal more of your teeth, creating a more balanced look.

Short Teeth

In some cases, your gums may cover a portion of your teeth and make them look shorter than they are. A dental laser trims the gum line to reveal more tooth structure.

The Gum Contouring Treatment Timeline What to Expect


During your initial dental consultation at our Leesburg, VA, office, Dr. Han will learn about your cosmetic goals and determine if gum contouring is right for you. He'll examine your teeth and gums, create your treatment plan, and answer any questions or concerns you may have.


To begin the treatment, local anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort at all times. Using a dental laser is very comfortable and the procedure will be over before you know it. Once your gums are numb, we will start the contouring process.


Dr. Han uses a laser to carefully trim away excess gum tissue. He will remove tissue from each selected tooth to help achieve a more uniform smile and frame for your teeth. The entire procedure can be completed in just one dental appointment.

Combining Gum Contouring for Unbeatable Results

Gum contouring is an excellent standalone treatment but is also commonly performed with other dental procedures for comprehensive results. Dr. Han can help determine if any of the below treatments are suitable for your cosmetic goals:

Teeth Whitening

After achieving a more symmetrical gum line, teeth whitening can help you achieve a bright, luminous smile for a simple but dramatic transformation. Our Leesburg and Arlington offices offer both in-house and at-home whitening treatments.

Contouring and veneers often go hand in hand. Patients may need gum contouring to create enough room on the tooth for the veneer to rest upon, or they may want veneers to accentuate the results of their contouring. In either case, veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that significantly enhances your appearance.

Dental Implants

Dental implants on the front teeth are especially challenging to match to the surrounding teeth. If the gums are not aligned, contouring is often used to achieve a symmetrical appearance to ensure the implant restoration naturally blends in with your smile.

Smile Makeover

A smile makeover combines several treatments based on your cosmetic goals and budget to give you the stunning smile you deserve. Gum contouring can be included to ensure an attractive, confident look you'll love showing off.
