Gum lift / Recontouring procedure
(also with Porcelain Veneers)
A gum lift or gum contouring procedure involves gently removing excess gum tissue by contouring and shaping the gummy section of your smile. Using a laser Cosmetic Dentists Dr. Beau Keller and Dr. Andrew Keller, will gently sculpt the gum level removing the gummy part and reshape your smile in this fast and painless cosmetic procedure. The result is a much bigger, whiter, and more gorgeous smile. This procedure is also very often used in combination with a smile makeover using porcelain veneers. The gum lift helps to ensure symmetry and smoothness to the overall smile result.
When too much gum tissue grows down covering the teeth, the smile appearance becomes too gummy and the teeth appear too small. This often happens as a natural genetic occurrence. In other instances it occurs while wearing braces, because of hormone changes, or as a side effect of some medications.
The smile is made up of more than just teeth. We understand that all the aspects of the smile have to be in balance and harmony for the smile to be at its best. One of the most often-overlooked and misunderstood parts of the smile are the gums.
