A gum lift can provide many benefits: eliminating excess gum tissue, lengthening the appearance of the teeth, and improving the balance of your smile. If you feel self-conscious about the amount of gum tissue visible when you smile or laugh, you may be a good candidate for a gum lift. By recontouring the gums, Dr. Kevin Sands can effectively renew the gum line and enhance the appearance of your smile.

The cost of a gum lift varies from patient to patient since each person’s needs are unique. Factors such as the amount of excess gum tissue, the complexity of the procedure, the projected duration of the treatment, and the experience of your cosmetic dentist can all impact the final price of gum recontouring. If you are having a gum lift performed as part of a smile makeover, the cost of the procedure may also be affected. During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Sands will perform an oral examination, determine whether you are a good candidate for a gum lift, and create a customized treatment plan. A member of our team will then be able to provide you with a cost estimate for the entire procedure.

Some individuals have an excess of gum tissue that shortens the appearance of their teeth. This condition, frequently referred to as a “gummy” smile, is very common and can ultimately be the source of extreme self-consciousness. Fortunately, there is an advanced treatment available at our practice that can restore balance and harmony to your smile: it’s called a gum lift.

Dr. Kevin Sands often uses the gum lift procedure to reshape the gums and alter the gum line, lengthening the appearance of the teeth and improving overall balance and symmetry. Since a gum lift is performed with a state-of-the-art laser, the procedure is often virtually painless. Laser gum lifting can also usually be completed within one hour, and involves very little recovery time. Some patients choose to incorporate a gum lift into a full smile makeover for a more comprehensive smile rejuvenation.
