Gum Recontouring

Gum Recontouring reshape the gums and create the appearance of a longer tooth by removing excess gum tissue, thereby exposing more of the enamel and producing a fuller, brighter smile. A gum lift is recommended for the so called “gummy smile” when excessive gum is displayed above the teeth during smiling. There are several causes for this: abnormal growth and development of the jaw and teeth, excessive gum tissue, and a hyper-mobile upper lip. The gum lift procedure involves gum and/or bone removal around the front teeth making them longer. This can have a dramatic effect in turning a “gummy” short tooth smile into a much prettier smile.
