Gum Recontouring

A gum lift or gum contouring procedure involves gently removing excess gum tissue by contouring and shaping the gum section of your smile. Using a gentle diode laser, we will sculpt the gum level to remove the gummy part and reshape the smile. The result is a much bigger, whiter, and more gorgeous smile. The gum lift helps to ensure symmetry and smoothness to the overall smile result.

Are There Limitations To Gum Recontouring?

The limitations in a gum lift procedure have to do with just how much sculpting we can do with our laser. There is a certain amount of gum tissue needed around your teeth in order to have a healthy tooth-gum balance. This measurement is called the biologic width. The best way to find out if we can fix your gummy smile is to schedule a consultation appointment with our Love Smiles team.
