Gum Lift Austin TX

Gum lifts too are an ideal way to help Austin TX patients reduce the appearance of gum tissue, commonly referred to as a “gummy smile.” While excess gum tissue isn’t an oral health concern, it can be an aesthetic concern for many patients. Using state-of-the-art equipment, I can remove unwanted gum tissue to create a more pleasing and even smile.

A Gentle Treatment with Dramatic Results 

When it comes to making over your smile, gum lifts are often one of the first steps for many Austin TX patients. Perfect for “gummy smiles,” short or small teeth, and crooked or asymmetrical smiles, gum contouring is a simple, conservative procedure that can give you dramatic results instantly.

Gum lifts involve reshaping your gumline using a gentle laser to remove excess gum tissue surrounding your teeth. Although it’s typically used for cosmetic purposes, there are some instances where it may be medically necessary, such as reducing your risk of periodontal disease. It’s an extremely safe procedure that provides permanent results; once removed, the gum tissue won’t regenerate. 

Before the procedure starts, I’ll give you a local anesthetic so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. It’s common to feel some minor tenderness after the procedure, but it should go away within a few days. During your appointment, I’ll go over what to expect during the recovery process and how to reduce any discomfort or swelling you might experience. 

Schedule a Consultation for Laser Gum Contouring

Whether you’d like to sculpt an uneven gum line or address a concern like gum recession, I’ll take time to discuss the gum contouring procedure with you and what you can expect from it. If your smile isn’t able to be improved with a gum lift alone, we can discuss additional cosmetic procedures.
