A gum lift, also known as gum contouring or gingival sculpting, is a meticulous dental procedure offered at Unicare Center for Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry that involves reshaping and repositioning the gum tissue surrounding your teeth. This process is designed to create a balanced and harmonious appearance between your teeth and gums, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing and proportionate smile.

When Is a Gum Lift Necessary?

A gum lift becomes a consideration for various scenarios, including:

  • Excess Gum Tissue: When a “gummy smile” results from an overabundance of gum tissue, overshadowing the teeth and affecting the smile’s aesthetics.
  • Uneven Gumline: If the gumline is uneven or asymmetrical, a gum lift can create a balanced and harmonious gum contour.
  • Restorative and Cosmetic Goals: A gum lift is often performed in conjunction with restorative or cosmetic treatments to achieve optimal results.

  • Detailed Evaluation: Our dentist and team conducts a thorough assessment to determine the suitability of a gum lift for your unique needs and goals.
