Gum Lifts


An overly gummy smile can make your grin look a little awkward. Large gums cause teeth to appear short and stumpy while uneven gums can make your teeth look misshaped. To help her patients with gummy smiles enhance their appearance, Dr. Deborah Gennero offers a laser gingivectomy, a moderately conservative treatment that modifies the shape of the gumline.


Using a special laser, Dr. Gennero will reshape your gumline, raising it or lowering it to reveal just the right amount of tooth enamel. Gum lifts are often performed before placing porcelain veneers. A perfectly contoured gumline allows veneers to rest more naturally on the teeth. Also, in conjunction with other simple cosmetic procedures such as dental whitening or tooth contouring, a gum lift can dramatically improve the symmetry and beauty of your smile.

Since a gum lift involves the soft tissues of the mouth, you can expect some healing time after the procedure and you may need to take an over-the-counter pain medication should you experience any discomfort. As with every cosmetic or restorative treatment, be sure to follow Dr. Gennero’s instructions to ensure optimal healing.
