Gum Lifts

Contemporary Dental Care of Mt. Vernon

A gum lift is a type of cosmetic dental procedure that can produce a more even-looking smile. It is ideal for anyone who is currently unhappy with the way that their smile looks due to the amount of gum tissue that is present covering the fronts of the teeth.

What is a Gum Lift?

A gum lift is considered a cosmetic procedure and can be done right in the office at your own convenience. The procedure involves lifting the gum tissue on the fronts of the teeth to increase the size and look of the teeth. It’s especially ideal for people who have short teeth or “gummy” smiles, but it can also be ideal for people who just want more uniform dentition.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Gum Lift?

Gum lifts are ideal for many different patients who would like to improve and enhance the look and feel of their smile. Some of the most viable candidates for the procedure include:

  • Patients with a short “gummy” smile
  • Patients who want more uniform dentition
  • Patients who have had an accident that has affected their gum tissue

What to Expect

The gum lift procedure is done quickly and easily right in the office and recovery time is minimal. You will be sent home the very same day with after-care instructions on how to care for the area while it is healing. The procedure can help to improve your self-esteem and confidence due to how effective it is at lengthening your teeth.
