A gingivectomy, or gum-lift, is a dental procedure that reshapes, recontours, or removes the excessive gum tissue to enhance the look of your teeth for a beautiful, renewed smile.
How is it done?
Gum-lifts can be accomplished utilizing our state-of-the-art soft tissue laser technology—the procedure is relatively painless with quick recovery time. We use a diode laser designed for delicate and intricate soft tissue removal and management. No scalpels or incisions are involved.
Does it hurt?
During gum-lift treatment, the patient is numb and comfortable, allowing for a painless procedure. After treatment, mild to medium soreness or tenderness is expected at the gum line.
Who would benefit from a gum lift procedure?
- Anyone with excessive soft tissue showing, known as a “gummy smile.”
- Anyone with an uneven gum line, making the teeth look like they are different sizes and shapes.
- Anyone whose teeth insufficiently erupted from the gums, making teeth appear smaller than their actual size.
