Gum reshaping often goes hand in hand with cosmetic treatments like porcelain veneers and bonding. This dental enhancement helps to restructure your “gummy” smile or provide you with length if you feel your teeth are just not long enough. Gum reshaping, also known as a “gum lift” or “gum-line recontouring,” is a cosmetic treatment that changes the shape of your gums to assist in capturing the beautiful smile your striving to achieve.
The gum reshaping process reveals your natural teeth that are simply covered by a naturally lower gumline. Our expert team will reshape your gum line from the bottom, revealing more tooth mass and creating a more symmetrical appearance.
Thanks to the technological innovation of lasers, gum reshaping is a simple process that affords you instant results. Following the treatment, your gums may be slightly swollen and a little sore, but this will diminish quickly. Most patients can resume with their normal daily activities on the same day of the procedure, with some dietary modifications for a few days.
On the day of your procedure, you will be numbed and comfortable. Dr. Layliev will then use a small laser to trim your gum line. The laser seals off the tissue, so there is no need for stitches. In just a few short minutes, you will have your desired new gum line.
Gum reshaping is available by itself or as part of a complete smile transformation!
