Porcelain veneers and gum lift procedures are typically received in tandem by many patients, as they are looking for multiple ways to improve their smile. If you’re struggling with both a gummy smile and discolored or chipped teeth, it might be best to get both the veneers and gum lift simultaneously.
How Do the Procedures Work?
Undergoing contouring is especially necessary, considering that veneers will fit better on your teeth if they have been properly contoured. Contouring helps when gums get in the way of your smile, whereas veneers can help rejuvenate it. When combined, these procedures will help you get the most out of your visit with Dr. Konig.
These two procedures are so popular to pair together because they help revitalize and freshen up your smile, giving you a pronounced, beautiful smile.
How Dr. Konig’s office can help you with your veneers and gum lift procedure:
- Patients meet with Dr. Konig to discuss what they would like their smiles to look like during the initial visit.
- Dr. Konig will make specific measurements of your mouth at different angles, allowing him to get an in-depth view of where your new gum line will be.
- He will also use these unique measurements to create veneers for your teeth.
- After the gum line surgery, your veneers will be able to rest on your new contour line.
If there are any specific measurements you would like modified, Dr. Konig can easily make adjustments for you. He is happy to provide you with a smile that you’ll love.
How Long are the Procedures?
Both procedures are relatively quick and painless, allowing patients to have a healthy-looking, youthful smile as efficiently as possible. They also last a long time; laser gum surgery is permanent, whereas porcelain veneers can last up to a decade or more. Both, however, will provide noticeable improvements to your smile for a long time, leaving you with less hassle.
