Gum Lifting and Contouring
Gum Lifting and contouring, also known as crown lengthening, is a cosmetic form of dental treatment used to improve the general look of a person’s teeth. It is basically used in cases where the individual has what is commonly known as ‘gummy smile’. Gummy Smile is a condition in which the gums cover too much of the teeth and make them look too short.
Gum lifting and contouring can solve this problem through quick and painless treatment. It is commonly done through the use of a scalpel. However, special laser devices have also been used in the gummy smile treatment. The scalpel or laser will be used to trim away at any excessive gum overlying the teeth.
This dental cosmetic procedure allows the patient to have longer, younger looking teeth and can correct the appearance of crooked teeth due to an uneven gum line, improve your smile and also your self-confidence to smile.
