gum lift

  • Gum lifts are procedures done to improve a “gummy smile.” There are two types of gum lift procedures – gingivectomy and crown lengthening.
    • Gingivectomy is a cosmetic procedure that involved gum reshaping to raise and sculpt the gums to create the appearance of longer, more symmetrical teeth and a more pleasing smile.
    • Crown lengthening procedure involves removing excess gums and the supporting bone tissue to reveal more of the tooth’s crown.
  • Who is a candidate for a gum lift procedure?
    • Having a gummy smile can affect confidence and cause a person to be self-conscious about their smile. Our dentist and specialists will examine to determine if gum lift procedure is recommended for you.
    • A gum lift procedure is often completed in conjunction with other cosmetic dental procedures such as veneers to achieve maximum esthetics.
  • What to expect during a gum lift procedure:
    • Local anesthesia around the gum area will be administered and our gum specialist will use minimally invasive methods to reshape the gum line.
