In brief: Variable
The dentist can make the gums look normal but it depends what the surgery looks like.
Sometimes free gingival grafts can look like a patch on a tire. There are techniques to blend the tissue so it looks like the patch was never there. Often the procedure can be done so there are no esthetic concerns at all.
