Fixing Excessive or Uneven Gums
Many people have excessive or uneven gums. This “Gummy Smile” is unflattering.
An aesthetic surgical procedure called a gum lift can be used to correct this problem.
For a simple gum lift, your Midtown Dentistry dentist will use a laser to eliminate the gummy smile – by sculpting away the excess tissue. When using the laser for surgery there is no bleeding, no swelling, no sutures and little pain. Your smile can change in just a few minutes.
When a more advanced and larger gum lift is involved, our Periodontist (Gum specialist) will use a guide we make to add and remove gum tissue to create great looking gums.
