Do You Have A Gummy Smile? Enhance Your Smile With A Cosmetic Gum Lift.
Do you have a smile that shows substantially more gums than teeth? Instead, do you want a smile that shows your beautifully exposed teeth and less of your gums? Or perhaps you have an uneven gumline that isn’t attractive? If you’d like to replace your gummy smile with a new smile or fix your uneven, unattractive gumline, McKinney Dentist has the perfect solution for you—a cosmetic gum lift.
The gummy smile occurs because of an over-growth of gum tissue that covers part of the tooth that should be showing when you smile—hence, the “gummy smile” description. Typically, it takes only one appointment for our trained dentists to perform a cosmetic gum lift. Here at McKinney Dentist, we also like to refer to a gum lift as an “aesthetic crown lengthening” solution. Combining their cosmetic and restorative expertise, our dentists collaborate to design, treatment plan, and deliver beautiful and functional results for each of our unique patients. This approach is one of the ways we set ourselves apart in our community and the reason why we can achieve consistently amazing clinical outcomes.
Just What Is A Cosmetic Gum Lift?
The gum lift procedure is fairly simple to understand. After you are comfortably anesthetized, one of our skilled and qualified cosmetic dentists will gently raise your gums, or remove part of your gums, for correct positioning and appropriate contouring.
The gum lift creates an aesthetically-pleasing appearance by exposing more of your teeth. Consequently, after a gum lift, your teeth become longer and more proportional to each other. The natural contours of your teeth will be beautifully exposed, resulting in a brilliant smile!
Get a Gum Lift and Love Your Smile!
Our patients rave at the little amount of discomfort they experience, along with the extreme satisfaction of the results after a gum lift in McKinney, TX. They enjoy showing off their new smile at every opportunity—and we love bringing you those opportunities, as well! Furthermore, the recovery time is quick due to the fast healing time of your gum tissue.
Protect Your Beautiful Smile
To determine if this must be done, we evaluate if the gum margins meet the recommended location from the edge of the bone. If no changes are made to the bone, the possibility stands for your gums to grow and cover your teeth again, thereby, defeating the purpose of a surgical gum lift!
The gum lift is a simple solution to add the finishing touches to a flawless smile. Just think—if you recently got veneers, but your gum line is uneven, then it detracts from the aesthetic brilliance of veneers. To correct this problem, a cosmetic gum lift is the perfect solution. Since the gum tissue is attached to the underlying bone, we sometimes have to alter the bone during the same procedure.
