Gum Lifting


At Sydney’s Dental Lounge we see numerous patients who complain about their ‘gummy smile’ and whether there is anything they can do about it. Gum-lifting is the process where excess gum tissue is delicately removed through the use of a laser.

For patients who have uneven gums, gum lifting is used to re-contour the gum tissue to fit our patients smiles and teeth to the general contours of their face.

Laser technology allows us to be much more conservative with the removal of gum tissue rather than having a large surgical procedure with scalpels and surgical gum lifting tools.

The recovery is minimal, with most of our patients being able to return to work the next day.

Cosmetic injectables are a fast and effective way to treat a gummy smile which works by relaxing specific muscles of your face, helping redesign your smile so that the muscles do not raise your lips beyond a certain point controlling your amount of gum visibility, giving you a healthy teeth to gum proportion.

This method is a quick procedure which can be performed with minimal discomfort by one of Dental Lounges experienced cosmetic dentists within 15 minutes with no downtime. Ask one of our friendly staff about our Gummy Smile correction options or come see us to see which one is right for you.

Gum lift costs are approximately $250-300 per tooth
