For patients who have excessive gum tissue, teeth can appear stubby. What you may not know is that beneath that overgrown soft tissue, your teeth are just waiting to be revealed! If you have a gummy smile, we may recommend a gum lift, otherwise known as a gingivectomy.
This simple cosmetic procedure can be performed by soft tissue laser, Electrosurge, or traditional surgery. We’ll talk with you about your options and what to expect during the procedure, then discuss the outcome you want to achieve. We will refer you to a specialist to perform the lift, assist in coordinating treatment and will monitor your progress. After a brief recovery, your new smile will look bold, beautiful, better than you thought possible!
