A gum lift, or gum contouring, is a procedure where a laser is used to remove tissue from the top of teeth. Gums can cover up tooth structure, making your teeth appear to be short and wide. When the proportion of gum to tooth are off, it results in a smile that appears “gummy.” Other common gum problems that can be corrected with a gum lift or gum contouring include uneven gums and loss of tissue between your teeth. If considering a gum lift, our doctors will evaluate the gum line to assess which areas need contouring and how to achieve symmetry of the teeth. The procedure is quick and it gives you instant results! Your smile will be transformed in one short visit.
