What Is Gum Lifting And Contouring?

Gum lifting, also known as ‘gingivectomy’, is a cosmetic dentistry procedure which improves the aesthetics of your smile by ensuring the gum line of your teeth is in the best possible position to show off your teeth.​ Gum lifting and contouring can be used to fix the “gummy smile” condition. The entire gum lift process is completely painless. Gum lifting and contouring are typically only done on the front teeth. Re-contouring your gums can make a dramatic difference on the overall balance and look of your smile. Dr Lavonne Kong is able to expertly re-contour your gum tissue to remove excess gum for a cleaner, more refined and harmonious smile to reveal your desired look.
