Gum Lifts: Less Gum, More Teeth Equals A Beautiful Smile

Posted on January 13th, 2024

Learn about gum lifts from Advanced Dentistry by Design in Carson City. Learn about the procedure, its benefits, and things to consider when getting a gum lift.Do your gums protrude more than your teeth when you smile? This can sometimes have a negative impact on your self-confidence, which might cause you to smile less frequently. If you have a gummy smile, worry not, at Advanced Dentistry by Design in Carson City we have a solution called a gum lift. 

We understand that a smile is often the first thing people notice, and we want you to feel confident showing off yours. Gum lifts improve the appearance of a “gummy smile,” and can help you regain your confidence. Schedule your appointment with Advanced Dentistry by Design in Carson City and we can talk with you about how a gum lift can remove excess gum tissue and enhance the appearance of your smile.

What is a Gum Lift?

A gum lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess gum tissue, reshaping the gum line to create a more symmetrical smile. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and has a short recovery time.

Benefits of a Gum Lift:

  • It can improve the appearance of your smile, ultimately boosting your self-confidence
  • It can improve your oral health as it will make it easier for you to clean your teeth
  • Eliminates excess gum tissue
  • Results are permanent 
  • It’s a quick, easy surgery with a short recovery time.

Things to consider if you get a Gum Lift:

  • You might experience some tenderness after the procedure, as you heal.
  • Possible relapse of gum tissue.

If you are feeling self-conscious because of a “gummy smile,” contact Advanced Dentistry by Design in Carson City to schedule an appointment and find out if a gum lift is the right procedure for you. We are dedicated to helping you smile with confidence.
