Laser Gum Lift Surgery

Model Of Teeth and Gums

Do you avoid grinning for photos because you have a gummy smile that you don’t like the appearance of? Showing excess gum tissue can make you feel self-conscious, but there’s no reason to continue hiding your teeth, because there’s a simple cosmetic solution for getting rid of gummy smiles!

What Is Laser Gum Lift Surgery?

A gummy smile is caused by having excess gum tissue, which can also give off the appearance that you have short teeth.  During gum lift surgery, our dentist uses a small tipped laser to carefully remove the excess gum, giving the appearance that your gums have been lifted. Removing the tissue reveals more tooth, and improves the appearance of your smile.

Other benefits of this procedure include:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Virtually painless
  • Bleeding is minimal to non-existent
  • No risk of infection
  • Quick to perform
  • Recovery time is faster and easier than other gum lift methods
  • Very affordable

Gum Lift Post Op Instructions

If you do experience some discomfort after your gum lift procedure, it shouldn’t be anything that an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication can’t handle. Aleve (naproxen sodium), or Motrin (ibuprofen) work best in this situation.

Also, rinsing your mouth several times a day with a mixture of warm saltwater will help comfort the area and make it heal faster.

Brushing is also very important. Use an extra-soft bristled toothbrush to gently massage the gums. For the first few days after surgery, you may experience some bleeding, but it will stop soon enough.
