Gum Contouring and Tooth Lengthening

Did you know?

Gum contouring is s relatively simple procedure which is done in one visit with a local anesthetic.

If your gums rest too low on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile, you may be a candidate for gum contouring surgery.

What is a gum lift?

Gum lift essentially raises the gum line. The severity of a gummy smile is determined by the gum-to-tooth ratio. There are three basic categories of a gummy smile:

  • Mild – Your gum tissue covers up to 25 per cent of the length of your teeth
  • Moderate – Your gum tissue covers between 25 and 50 per cent of your teeth
  • Advanced – Gum tissue encompasses 50 to 100 per cent of your smile

The process itself involves a dental laser which is used to remove the excess gum and seal the affected tissue as it progresses.
