What is Gum Lift?

Gum lift is just a produce that sculpts and raises the gum line. The procedure is designed to reshape the underlying bones or/and the tissue so that it can create a symmetrical or longer teeth, thereby the smile will be made more pleasing. Gum lift is commonly done to either balance out gum lines that are considered as asymmetrical or to make a gummy smile smaller.

Dentists have been using this aesthetic procedure during the last three to five years. This practice was introduced in the 80s, but these procedures were not widely available owing to lack of dental practitioners and oral surgeons. This procedure can even be used to decrease the upper jaw´s prominence or even out gum ratio or the tooth. Contrary to gum contouring which let the gingival grow again, gum lift provides results that are considered as permanent. The smile looks more pleasing after being evened up by gum lift as well.

The Process

Gum lift removes the gum so that teeth appear longer, and your gun-line even. People who are self-conscious about their gummy smiles will benefit a lot from gun lifts. These people have upper lips that move high when smiling as they have excess gum that covers the front teeth. An attractive smile will appear when the gum-line has the same lengths for each tooth.

Patients have to use mouth rinses that are antiseptic such as Q-tip and apply an upward pressure upon their gums as they start to heal. Gum lift only takes about 30 minutes and might cost up to $175 per tooth.
