Pointe-Claire laser gum lift
If you have a gummy smile and your teeth appear smaller than they should, your gums are too high on the teeth or the gum line is uneven, a gum lift also known as gum contouring or gingivoplasty, will correct it and give you the beautiful smile you want.
You should have healthy gums in order to get laser gum lift. If there are any periodontal problems, those must be treated before.
What is the procedure for a Gum lift?
The dentist will apply a mild local anesthetic to numb your gums and use a soft tissue laser to trim away the excess or uneven gum tissue. He will then reshape the existing tissue and finally seal it off to minimize bleeding. The procedure is typically very short and relatively painless.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth you may consider custom veneers, teeth whitening or dental bonding in combination with gum reshaping to achieve the perfect smile you are dreaming to have.
