Have you noticed changes in your smile recently, ones that are causing you to feel insecure? Do your teeth seem smaller or misshapen, even though you have not suffered a trauma to them? Though many people look only at their teeth, when examining their smiles, the gum tissue is just as important to creating and maintaining a beautiful smile. Unfortunately, over time, many people begin to notice that their gums seem to have grown, covering more and more of their teeth. This can lead to smiles that look disproportionate or uneven, and often much older than a personal actually is, much less how he or she feels. A cosmetic dentist can help improve the appearance of a “gummy” smile, though, making a gum lift an excellent way to revitalize the smile!
How Can a Gum Lift Help to Improve Your Smile?
In the past, gum lifts could only be done through traditional surgery techniques. Fortunately, modern cosmetic dentistry has made it possible for dentists and oral surgeons to complete gum lifts using laser technology, which is more comfortable and requires less recovery time than previous methods.
That is because the laser helps to seal blood vessels even as the dentist is sculpting the tissue, eliminating a need for stitches, and reducing both discomfort and the amount of time it takes to recover after a gum lift.
So, if you’re unhappy with your smile, talk to your cosmetic dentist about the potential benefits of a gum lift. A gum lift may be the best way to help you achieve a younger-looking, and more beautiful smile.
