Gum Lift, Contouring & Reshaping Treatment

What Is A Gummy Smile?

Many people try to hide their gums when they smile and talk and sometimes this may affect social confidence. The beauty of a smile is not only made up of teeth, but also the framing of the teeth including gums and lips.

A smile can appear gummy for many reasons. These include:

  • Excess gums
  • Upper lip that lifts excessively when smiling
  • Incorrect proportion of teeth size and shape

All that our dentists need to do is gently remove the excess gums to reveal more of your teeth. The results are instantly visible and will make an enormous difference to your smile.


Gummy Smile Treatment Options

In creating symmetry between teeth and framing of teeth, we offer a range of cosmetic and dental options to improve your gummy teeth smile. Every dental case is different, however with a smile design consultation we can discuss your treatment options and create a personalised treatment plan most suitable for you to achieve your dream smile. We’ve even helped celebrity clients look their best on and off-screen.

The Benefits Of Laser Gum Recontouring

1. Gum Contouring

A technique we use to remove and reshape excess gum tissue in small sections that will reveal more of your teeth. This can create a more proportionate smile with a better ratio of gums to teeth.

2. Gum Lift With Porcelain Veneers

Looking for a gum lift treatment? Gummy teeth smiles are sometimes caused by disproportionate size and shape of teeth. If your gum tissue is healthy and correctly positioned, veneers can be used to correct the size, shape and proportion of your teeth (teeth contouring). This combination will help to decrease the amount of gum showing and increase tooth size.

3. Gum Lift With Braces Or Invisalign

Moving the position of your natural teeth may be enough to change the proportions of your smile with braces or Invisalign.

There are various gum lift treatments. One would be the traditional method where the dentist uses a blade, a scalpel, to cut the gums, and you might bleed quite a bit, and at the same time you get a nice smile. However, there’s going to be some pain and discomfort and healing might take a few days, even up to a week. This is why we have evolved our methods and use the laser gum lift treatment.

Laser Gum Lift

At Dental Boutique, we use a specialised laser. The laser can lift your gums up very gently and healing is actually quite instantaneous because there’s no bleeding and there’s no scarring. You might get some slight discomfort towards the end, but it’s definitely nowhere near the traditional method.
