Displaying an excess amount of gum tissue can be damaging to your self-esteem increasing your self consciousness with respect to your smile.
This condition is often colloquially referred to as a “gummy smile”. This issue can be easily corrected with a gum lift, a procedure Dr Zafiropoulos performs on many cosmetic dentistry patients.
Dr William Zafiropoulos 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. Dr Zafiropoulos has been performing gum cosmetic gum lifts and gum re shaping for over 20 years.
This procedure can be done to one tooth, to even your gum line, or to several teeth to expose a natural broad smile. The procedure is quick and recovery is usually painless. The results will normally last forever.
We use the latest state of the art diode laser technology to re shape your gum tissue-as well as using the more traditional methods- many times both methods are utilised in conjunction with one another in order to achieve the best results for your gum surgery.
Diode laser gum lifts can both minimise recovery times and create improvements in in symmetry and balance between gums and teeth.
When it comes to gum lifting, the amounts of gum removed are very small- so an experienced stable hand is required. We have provided hundreds of gum lifts for our cosmetic dentistry patients. With gum lifts experience counts especially as the procedure is usually not reversible.
May patients who have a gum lift for their gummy smile often experience a renewed sense of self esteem after their gum lift.
As Dr Zafiropoulos uses Diode lasers for the procedure there is virtually no post operative discomfort and patients are normally able to return to their usual activities after just a few hours.
Gum lifting usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes and a dental local anaesthetic is applied prior to the procedure to ensure you have no discomfort during or afterwards. In addition the use of state of the art lasers makes the gum lift virtually painless afterwards.
