Cosmetic Gum Lifts

Improve your smile

For patients who have excessive gum tissue, your smile can appear very gummy or that your teeth are stubby. Many people are unaware that this condition can be treated. If you are unhappy with your  gummy smile, we may recommend a gum lift, otherwise known as a gingivectomy.

A gum lift is a simple cosmetic procedure that will raise and sculpt the gum line to create a longer or more symmetrical look to your teeth. This procedure will reduce the excessively gummy smile and replace it with a more aesthetically pleasing smile. We’ll talk with you about your options and what to expect during the procedure, then discuss the outcome you want to achieve.

Easy procedure

The day of your procedure, we’ll mark your gum tissue, make sure that you’re comfortable with anesthesia or sedation, and then precisely remove the excess soft tissue. After a brief recovery, your new smile will look bold, beautiful, better than you thought possible!

Because an attractive smile DOES matter. Call today to schedule your gum lift appointment with Dr. Heher. We deliver exceptional care and personalized service to residents of Salisbury and Delmarva.
