Would you suggest a gum lift? Or another type of surgery?

Q: I don’t like my gummy smile. It’s not major. By that I mean you can’t see my gums when I talk, but you can see them when I smile. Is gum lift the better option? Could you give me an approximation of the cost? Thank you!

A: It is difficult to quote fees on a forum like this because each patient presents differently at the time of the exam. The treatment might require a different laser or possibly a different approach to attain the cosmetic result that the patient is seeking. Find an experienced laser periodontist who uses a number of different lasers so they can choose the safest and best one for your clinical situation.
