Is Having a Gum Lift Really Necessary for Your Oral Health?

Is Having a Gum Lift Really Necessary for Your Oral Health?

If your gums rest too low or too high on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile, you may be a candidate for gum contouring surgery. Also called gum reshaping or tissue sculpting, this cosmetic dental procedure can even out an uneven gum line and give you a smile you can be proud of.

A number of things can cause your gums to be too low or too high. Gums that cover a large portion of your teeth can make your teeth look small. This may be the result of genetics, a particular health problem, or taking certain prescription drugs.

“ Not only can gum recession make your teeth look long, it can lead to serious dental problems such as decay and tooth loss. ”

Gums that are too high and make your teeth appear long are often caused by gum recession, a condition in which gum tissue pulls back from a tooth and exposes the tooth‘s root.
