Sometimes gum tissue covers a portion of the front surface of the tooth and leads to a ‘gummy’ smile.
A gum lift is a surgical procedure which exposes more of the natural crown of the tooth, providing a dramatic improvement in appearance.
Special Care Dental undertakes the procedure at its North Adelaide or Millicent clinics under local anaesthetic. A small amount of gum tissue is carefully removed and the resulting wound is generally not painful.
Post-operative antiseptic gel is applied and within 1-2 weeks the gum is fully healed.
Depending on the circumstances, we may also recommend the placement of veneers as this will further enhance the effect.
