Are you self conscious about a gummy smile?

In many cases, there is simply too much gum bulk, and a “gum lift” is required. This can often be done by removing excess gum (gingivectomy), under local anaesthetic, and it can have immediate aesthetic outcomes where teeth that were excessively covered by gums become more harmoniously visible, creating a better ratio between gum and tooth.
In some cases, a gum lift may involve crown lengthening for a higher level of gum reduction, which includes gingivectomy as well as minor bone recontouring. This can also be done comfortably with local anaesthetic or I.V. Sedation (sleep dentistry).
Gum lift solutions can sometimes be combined with aesthetic smile designs using porcelain veneers or crowns, to create optimal smile makeovers.
