No More Gummy Smiles
Healthy, well-contoured, pink gum tissue compliments and frames the teeth. The esthetic framing of the gum tissue is as important to the teeth as a quality frame is to a painting. Gum tissue that is red and swollen, and unsymmetrical in appearance detracts from teeth that are otherwise healthy.
The first order of business is to return the tissue to a healthy state. That is to reduce any inflammation and get the tissue tight and pink. Once that is achieved, you evaluate the contours of the tissue.
When you look at an attractive smile you not only see beautiful teeth but also gum tissue that is symmetrically draped around each tooth.
The cosmetic gum lift is a remarkably simple cosmetic procedure that can make a tremendous difference to one’s smile.
The procedure can also be used to reshape the tissue and/or underlying bones to create the appearance of longer or more symmetrical teeth.
“A smile is a facelift that’s in everyone’s price range.”
