Sometimes the contour of your gums can make one tooth look shorter than the other, when in fact the teeth are fine. Excessive gum tissue or gum tissue of varying heights is not necessarily unhealthy, but can produce an uneven looking smile. To correct these conditions, a gum lift is performed.
A gum lift or gum contouring procedure can be done painlessly in a very short time, without sutures or bleeding, and at the same time as your other restorative treatment. The result is a beautiful, even-looking smile.
The photograph on the right shows the results of a gum lift by West Palm Beach accredited cosmetic dentist Dr. Sam Sadati. The teeth were lengthened with a gum lift procedure, and then beautiful porcelain veneers were placed, for a truly stunning smile makeover.
