Cosmetic Gum Lifts

Some of our patients are unhappy with their smile due to excessive gum tissue that can make their teeth appear shorter. The dentists at Oak Park Dental have a cosmetic dentistry solution for this condition known as a gingivectomy, which is the precision removal of soft gum tissue to reveal a larger portion of your teeth. We utilize safe and exacting processes to produce the desired results – a more beautiful smile – through traditional surgery or the use of the Electrosurge soft tissue laser.

Your dentist will evaluate your case and then discuss treatment options with you. We want your experience to be comfortable and stress-free, so all aspects of the gum sculpting procedure will be carefully explained to you. Your procedure appointment will include defining areas of gum tissue to be excised, ensuring your anesthesia or sedation has you completely comfortable, and then precisely removing the areas of excess soft tissue. Recovery from gum sculpting procedures is relatively rapid, so you and your new smile are ready to dazzle with little delay.

We invite you to join our growing patient family and experience the difference exceptional dentistry and a relaxed environment make in your oral health. Our Madison general, family, cosmetic, and neuromuscular dentistry practice also serves patients from the surrounding communities of Middleton, Verona, Oregon, and Monona.
