Gum Lift

The Possible Solution to a ‘Gummy Smile’


What is a ‘Gum Lift’ or Gingivectomy?

A gum lift is a simple surgical procedure which can be completed in one visit and healing is usually quick with minimal side effects or complications. You may consider a gum lift if your gums embarrass you or they appear uneven, this can be corrected with a surgical gum lift. A gum lift can create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile. It is also becoming more common to be applied to only one or two teeth to create symmetry and harmony.

The procedure improves not only the appearance of gums but also the size, shape and emerging appearance of your teeth. We use the latest in LASER technology to gently recontour and reshape your gums for a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

The health and appearance of gums play an important role in the general aesthetics of your smile, a nice smile is not just about beautiful teeth but the choreography of the gingival tissue as well.

After approximately 12 weeks the maturity of the gums take their final position, dramatically improving a ‘gummy smile.’


If you are worried about the appearance of your gums make an appointment with one of our dentists to discuss your treatment options.
