Gum Lift and Gummy Smile

A gum lift is a cosmetic dental procedure. It involves reshaping the gum tissue, and possibly the bone, to improve the appearance of the smile. The procedure can be used to even the gum line, creating the appearance of longer teeth and removing the appearance of excess gum tissue (gumy smile).

Modern techniques. particularly the use of lasers, have greatly reduced discomfort and recovery time associated with the procedure.
