Gummy smile surgery

Do you want to see more of your teeth and less of your gums? If you have a low or uneven gum line, a gum list is the ideal procedure for you. A gum lift, also known as a gingivectomy, is a remarkably simple cosmetic procedure that helps reshape the gum line which can make a tremendous difference to one’s smile.
A gum lift is typically performed when:

  • The gums do not move back naturally when a new tooth emerges.
  • The lip is unusually high such that the gum line becomes clearly visible.
  • There are problems: periodontitis, dryness and tooth decay beyond a certain
    extent can necessitate the procedure.
  • There is irritation due to the presence of braces.
  • There is abnormal wear and tear of the teeth which in turn makes the normal
    gum line look abnormal.

At Dental Bright, we use laser dentistry to change the shape of your gum line. After numbing the gums, the soft-tissue laser safely and gently recontours gums, making teeth appear longer, shapelier, and more attractive. Using a laser instead of a scalpel, there is minimal bleeding and a much faster recovery time. The laser also helps fight against future infections by eliminating any hollows that trap bacteria.
