Gum recontouring, commonly known as a gum lift, is a procedure used to correct gums that are uneven or cover too much of the teeth. A gummy smile can make your teeth appear shorter than they are and result in a less aesthetically attractive smile.
Working with Smiling Dental, you can make your teeth sparkle and smile shine with a gum lift. Our cosmetic dentists can assess your smile and discuss your needs and requirements.

Gum Lift FAQs
What is a gum lift?
A gum lift is a dental procedure used to improve the appearance of a smile and reduce a gummy smile. Also known as gum recontouring, gum laser surgery, crown re-shaping or gum laser re-shaping, a gum lift can remove uneven gum lines.
What happens in a gum lift treatment?
In a gum lift treatment, a dental expert will reshape or sculpt your gum line to remove excess gum tissue, covering your teeth. The gum lift procedure is typically completed over one in-office dental visit using local anaesthesia and takes on average 1 to 2 hours.
