Cosmetic Gum Lift
One of the cosmetic dental services Dr. Franklyn Alexander provides is a cosmetic gum lift. A cosmetic gum lift corrects two main conditions – “gummy smiles” and uneven gum lines.
- A “gummy smile” occurs when too much gum tissue is displayed when smiling.
- Uneven gum lines result in teeth appearing to be misshapen or different lengths.
A gum lift is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes gum tissues in order to correct “gummy smiles” and balance uneven gum lines. To ensure fast healing and minimal discomfort, Dr. Alexander uses a dental laser. A cosmetic gum lift is usually a quick procedure and dental patients can usually eat and drink normally within a day.
