Smile Lift

Many people with excess gum display are unhappy with their smile but unaware of treatment options available.  Teeth in these situations often appear short or stubby; as long as they are wide.

A gum lift is an elective surgical cosmetic procedure that is frequently done for patients who have a gummy smile. 


Although there are many causes of gummy smiles, most patients with extra gum noticeable in their smile can have it altered with one relatively simple procedure.  Normally, the upper lip will rise with a smile to the tops of the upper teeth.


More specifically, to the highest points of the gingival scallops or arches.  It is said that you have a gummy smile when a smile exposes a lot of gum above the teeth.
