Gum Lift

Uneven gums or a ‘Gummy Smile’ can cause you to be unhappy with your smile and avoid smiling.

Gum Lift

Gum contouring works by changing the height of the gum and correcting the level of the gum so it isn’t uneven, and is designed to ensure you have healthy gums to complement a healthy set of teeth. Uneven gums or a ‘Gummy Smile’ can cause you to be unhappy with your smile and avoid smiling.

Correcting the size and height of the gums can helptransform the look of your smile and enhance yourconfidence. After the whole area has been numbed usinglocal anaesthetic, the treatment is completed by aprofessionally trained dentist who uses special dental lasers/ electrosurgery for a precise and accurate result. And it onlytakes around 2 minutes per tooth to do!

There are many lifestyle habits which contribute towards receding gums, including

Frequently asked questions

As anchors for the teeth, and protectors of the sensitive nerves that sit beneath the gum line, the gums require special care and attention just like the teeth. At Denticaredublin, we offer cosmetic treatment for gums for patients who may feel overwhelmed by the look of their smile. We are dedicated to all areas of oral care, including the care of an important but often overlooked part of smile health: the gums.

Gum recession is a common problem which occurs when the roots of the teeth are exposed because the gum tissue has degraded. Receding gums is a common issue, so you’re not alone if you have this problem.

If left untreated, this condition can lead to speaking problems. Hormones may also play a role in a progressively gummy smile. Hormonal imbalances caused by puberty or pregnancy can cause a increased blood flow to the gum tissue and change the way it maintains itself.

A gummy smile is usually innate, often the ‘gum smile’ is already visible at a young age. It’s typically because of a high amount of tension on the muscle that pulls up the lip, which makes it pull the lip higher than necessary. This happens when we laugh, since certain muscles pull more during smiling.

Personally, suppose the teeth alignment is perfect. In that case, periodontal tissues (gum tissue) are healthy, proportions of the crowns are ideal, and the patient doesn’t need teeth whitening; I think a moderate gummy smile looks attractive.

The thing that makes Gummy Smile unattractive is seeing every possible issue that might look unattractive. If every aspect of the upper teeth is beautiful, why would it look unattractive? There are a lot of Gummy Smile Celebrities who are really attractive.

It would be best if you decide by checking previous treatment before after pictures below. However, as a Denticare Cosmetic Dentist and Oral Surgeon with years of expertise in smile makeovers, I can say that it is worth it.

Most of my cases involve some gum contouring because pink aesthetics is as important as white aesthetics for achieving harmony of perfect smiles.

I've only ever had positive experiences at Denticaredublin, and I'm someone who loathes dental visits. Dr Nikolett is particularly impressive, as professional a dentist as you could find. Probably the best I have come across. Definitely a dental clinic I can wholly and thoroughly recommend.

This was my first time at Denticare. While in December I was not able to easily book an appointment (I guess everyone wanted to show their white pearls at their best for the Christmas parties), now in February I got an appointment quickly. The place is really easy to find, just be careful, once inside you need to go upstairs! Everyone here is really friendly and professional. I had the scale and polish with the teeth whitening. Very precise clean up of my teeths, I can't remember her name but she took such a good care of me, while being so kind. The whitening treatment was really gentle on my gums, no irritation at all. However, was enough to show a good difference! Overall I am satisfied with the service they provided and I can totally reccomand this practice :)
