In short, yes! A laser gum lift, also known as gingivectomy, is an excellent opportunity to reinvent your smile. The procedure consists of a minor gum line surgery, which serves as a singular treatment for your gum line’s appearance. Dr. Konig will only need to contour your gums one time to give you the lasting results you need.
How It Works
The surgery can be performed in any part of the mouth but is typically only requested in the areas that a patient’s smile typically highlights. While most patients consider this surgery to be conclusive, others like to pair it with other procedures, such as adding porcelain veneers to chipped or discolored teeth. We provide both of these services for our clients, as we feel that they are sometimes necessary for a healthy-looking smile.
Before the gum lift, we recommend a consultation visit, which consists of the following:
- Dr. Konig will look at your teeth, taking pictures and measurements.
- He will view your smile from multiple angles to best capture his measurements.
- Dr. Konig will individually measure your teeth, which allows him to determine the best way to modify your smile.
- During this time, you can also let Dr. Konig know what you want out of your smile so that he can adapt his measurements to your specifications.
Since we’d like you to have exactly the smile you wish to, we value your input during the initial visit.
How a Laser Gum Lift Can Benefit You
The gum lift procedure is easy and relatively painless; it’s a popular choice for clients wanting to fix their smile without a massive reconstructive surgery. Also, it requires only local anesthesia, making it even easier for potential patients. The surgery itself is quick, only requiring contouring around your gums. This contouring is permanent, meaning once you get your beautiful smile, you won’t need to come in for any touch-ups.
If your gums get in the way of your smile, don’t worry, there is a solution for you. A laser gum lift could be just what you need to give your smile its full potential.
