Gum Lift

Gum Lift

A gum lift or gingivectomy is a procedure done by Dr. Wyant to reshape your gums to provide a more pleasing smile. Having a “gummy smile” can cause a person to be very self-conscious about their appearance when they smile. This simple cosmetic procedure removes excessive gums that cover the natural teeth to improve the appearance of your smile and boosting your self-confidence. Gum lifts are generally done on the front teeth that show upon smiling.

A gum lift can be done as a stand-alone procedure but many times is done in conjunction with other cosmetic dental work. When cosmetic dental procedures are performed symmetry and balance of the teeth and gum levels are important to give a pleasing smile. If you have an excessive “gummy smile” or gums that have receded too much, Dr. Wyant may refer you to a periodontist (gum specialist) for a possible re-positioning of the gum heights of your teeth before any cosmetic procedures like porcelain veneers are done. Getting the gums right will insure the best possible outcome of any cosmetic dental work. Contact Smile Arkansas today to schedule a consultation for you or a family member.
