When you smile, do you show off more gums than teeth? Dr. James DeFinnis, a Trucksville, PA, cosmetic dentist offers laser gum recontouring (also called gum lifts or crown lengthenings) to give you the appearance of a toothier grin.
What is a Gum Lift?
A “gummy smile” is one in which the gums are more prominent than the teeth and the teeth appear small and short. Gum lifts are gentle cosmetic procedures that raise and reshape the gum line, correcting gummy smiles. Removing excess gum tissue exposes hidden tooth enamel, which results in a fuller, more beautiful smile.
How Does a Gum Lift Work?
Dr. DeFinnis will design your new gum line, which will be reshaped with a Diode Laser. This laser can recontour the gums in less than five seconds, causing little or no bleeding. Dr. DeFinnis can also place dental crowns or porcelain veneers or whiten your newly exposed teeth, complementing the look and giving you a complete smile makeover.
