During a gum lift, your gum line can be raised and contoured/evened out in order to better frame your teeth by increasing the length of your teeth exposed. This is a minimally invasive cosmetic dental procedure that is quite painless, and works well with other dental treatments for a complete smile makeover.
While usually used to improve aesthetic concerns, a gum lift might also prove necessary for certain health conditions. For example, abnormally developed teeth/jaw or worn down teeth may lead to a gummy smile. Having excess gum tissue can also interfere with how well you brush or floss your teeth, giving way to an increased risk of tooth decay. In this instance, a gum lift would also help you achieve a healthier smile.

Gum lifts can be incredibly beneficial for those looking to improve their smile and oral health. Here are some benefits:

The cost of a gum lift can vary depending on several factors some of which include the extent of the treatment and any additional dental work (such as crown lengthening, pocket reduction, and regenerative treatments) that might be needed. It is best to schedule a consultation with one of our qualified dentists to get a more accurate cost specific to your unique condition.
We also offer flexible payment plans to make treatments more accessible to patients
After-care for a gum lift is relatively simple. Recovery time varies from individual to individual and the complexity of your treatment plan, but most patients can return to work the next day and experience only slight swelling and bruising. We generally recommend avoiding spicy and hard foods after a treatment. If your treatment plan also involves other restorations, our dentist will outline the recommended dietary changes and course of action.
