Gum Lifting

Gum lifting is offered at our cosmetic dentistry practice to help patients achieve a balanced, confident smile.

What Is Gum Lifting?

Gum lifting, also known as gum reshaping or gingival sculpting, is a procedure in which a patient’s gums are contoured to a predetermined shape and size. It is a tried and true treatment that is safe and very brief, and requires virtually no recovery time. Gum lifting can correct asymmetry, make the gums more proportionate, or improve the overall appearance of a “gummy smile.” After administering a local anesthetic, Dr. Shukovsky uses a sophisticated soft tissue laser to gently change the shape of the gums. There is almost no discomfort, and the patient may return home immediately after the procedure.

Benefits of Gum Lifting

Gum lifting offers a quick and pain-free way to achieve an attractive and confident smile. The entire process is very short, in most cases lasting only an hour, and a single visit is all that is necessary. Current laser technology is highly precise and provides a safe and sterile treatment that makes the risk of infection negligible. You will enjoy the results for years to come.
