For patients who are self-conscious about their gums and looking to restore their smile and confidence, a gum lift might be the right answer. A gum lift contours the appearance of the gum line to improve teeth-to-gum ratio and form a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
A gum lift, otherwise known as gum contouring or gingival sculpting, is a procedure designed to remove gum tissue from the top of the teeth to create a radiant smile you are happy to bear. The gums may cover tooth structure which can make teeth appear short or wide. And when the proportion of gum-to-tooth ratio is close, some people feel as though their smile appears “gummy.” Our dentists at Wise Dental can correct a gummy smile with a gum lift procedure.
