Some people are unhappy with their gummy smile. It makes them look as if their teeth are too short. Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants can perform what is called a gum lift. This is a cosmetic dental process which our doctors first raise the gum line, then sculpt it to perfection. The process includes reshaping the tissue and the bones under them to create an appearance of symmetrical teeth. This helps to preserve the smile as asthetically pleasing and therefore restore personal confidence. Mainly this procedure is performed to lessen gummy smile but also can be used to balance out an uneven gum line. This process can be performed by our board certified periodontists at Anthem Periodontics and Las Vegas Dental Implant.

Gums are reshaped for different reasons. Having a gummy smile can cause low self-confidence and make people extremely conscious about their appearance. So, if you are not satisfied with your smile then simply consult our Las Vegas periodontists for a gum lift. This procedure is usually done on the front teeth as they are the most visible when you smile. Earlier, this process was a painful affair but now with advanced laser techniques utilized by Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants, recovery time is very short.
