A gummy smile is caused by a variety of factors, but the number one cause is too much tissue growth of the gums. When the gums grow too much, they can hang down over the tooth. Another cause that is often associated with the condition is known as a ‘hyperactive upper lip’, which raises too high when you smile. Unfortunately, these are both causes a person is born with and cannot do much about other than getting the actual gummy smile treated by your cosmetic dentist in Harley Street.
Do I need a gum lift?
Does excessive gum tissue issue sound familiar to you? Do your teeth appear small, uneven and feel they are damaging the look of your smile? Generally, it is the upper 10 front teeth that are addressed, since those are revealed the most in a smile. Fortunately, the issue can easily be treated with laser treatment from your cosmetic dentist in Harley Street.
This often-neglected procedure can be life-changing. It will instill self-confidence and peace of mind when you smile and interact with others. With proper check-ups and cleaning, gum lift treatments will last many years and possibly a lifetime.
That sounds painful!
Here, at Harley Street Dental Clinic, we always take steps to ensure our patients remain comfortable and relaxed during treatment. With laser dentistry, procedures rarely require anesthetic.

Does it a long time to recover from?

For example, using dental lasers means little to no bleeding, a significantly reduced risk of infection and faster healing periods.
