Gum Lift and Porcelain Veneers to correct gingival imbalance



This young man came to us because he didn’t like the appearance of his teeth. Whilst the teeth themselves can be improved with a variety of dental treatments, the main issue here was the asymmetry of the gum line and the gingival excess in the upper lateral incisor area.

Before improving the appearance of the teeth themselves, in order to achieve a more balanced choreography of the gum line we undertook a Gum Lift procedure. After allowing 8 weeks for the new gum line to stabilise, our cosmetic dentists fitted porcelain veneers to the front four upper teeth to complete the smile restoration.

Cosmetic Dentistry is not just about making the teeth look better. When assessing our patients at Centre for Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry we always look at the entire smile design, including the gum-line, in order to achieve the most optimal aesthetic results.
