Gum Recontouring reshape the gums and create the appearance of a longer tooth by removing excess gum tissue, thereby exposing more of the enamel and producing a fuller, brighter smile. A gum lift is recommended for the so-called “gummy smile” when excessive gum is displayed above the teeth during smiling. There are several causes: abnormal growth and development of the jaw and teeth, excessive gum tissue, and a hyper-mobile upper lip. The gum lift procedure involves gum and bone removal around the front teeth, making them longer. This can dramatically turn a “gummy” short-tooth smile into a much prettier one.
