Uneven gums or too much gum showing when speaking or smiling (gummy smile) can affect your smile and look unsightly. This can affect your confidence and be embarrassing at times. If this situation affects you there are options available to you that can reduce or eliminate this problem.
We use a laser to reshape the gums to reduce the number of gums visible on either a single tooth/ area or on multiple teeth/ areas. This is especially useful when trying to create a symmetrical outline of the gum.
The treatment is comfortable with instant healing and can the procedure can take from a few seconds to a few minutes depending on the number of areas that need treatment
Achieving a beautiful smile has never been easier. We aim to provide the best smile to you. Many people have a gummy smile or uneven gum levels.
With our advanced laser technique, your gum can be reshaped, which will improve the overall appearance of the teeth and hence the smile.
If your gum line is very uneven or if you show too much gum when you smile then gum reshaping (also known as gum contouring or gum lift) could be for you.
With gum reshaping your smile will look more balanced and symmetrical. The gum lift procedure can be carried out quickly and painlessly with an advanced special laser.
Gum reshaping produces excellent results on its own or is very often used with other treatments such as porcelain veneers or our very popular smile makeover.
There are a few scientific parameters when reshaping the gums. It is desired that:
The height of the gum for the central incisor and the canine be the same height.
The height of the gum for the lateral incisor be 0.5mm shorter than the central incisor.Contact our gum specialists today
