Not every patient in the Las Vegas area is born with a naturally beautiful smile. Sometimes, a condition called a “gummy smile” can result in the appearance of very small teeth and overwhelming amounts of gum tissue. This may make patients feel self-conscious about their smile. Instead of just living with this “gummy smile,” patients have an effective way of addressing it with a gum lift procedure.
The gum lift procedure is performed by Dr. Christopher Lim at Hillside Dental. Our Las Vegas area patients are excited to learn that a gum lift can enhance their appearance with a quick procedure. During the gum lift, excess gum tissue is removed and the gum line is contoured to look attractive and match the overall look of the smile. By doing this, patients are able to achieve a more attractive smile by ridding themselves of the excess gum tissue that can be distracting.
v Patients will need to heal for a few days, and our team of professionals will educate them on what to expect before, during, and after their gum lift treatment. The gum lift procedure is an elective treatment and typically is not covered by dental insurance. However, we can speak with patients who are considering the treatment and discuss with them financing options to make it affordable even on a tight budget. We feel that even cosmetic treatments should be attainable for those of all income levels.
If you live in or around the area of Las Vegas and want to find out more about the advantages of effective treatment for excessive gum tissue, now is the perfect time to contact Dr. Christopher Lim at Hillside Dental. We can recommend cosmetic procedures that can greatly enhance the smile and make patients feel more confident in the way they look.
