If your gums cover too much of your teeth or if your gum lines are uneven, it can cause you to have a 'gummy smile' or be uncomfortable with the way your smile looks. It can be especially frustrating if your teeth are otherwise straight and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The positive news is that there is a relatively easy and painless cosmetic procedure that can permanently address this problem. The procedure is called a 'gum lift' or gingivectomy.
A gum lift is the cosmetic dentistry procedure by which Dr. Holley or Dr. Duncan reshapes and re-contours your gums to give you the smile that you've always wanted. After discussing the exact height and shape you'd like for your gums, they will use a soft-tissue laser to quickly achieve the desired look. The process should only take one office visit, and no stitches or lengthy recovery time is required because it is a non-invasive procedure.
