gum lift at 23...tots worth it! :)

I've always hated how childish and small my teeth looked and how my gums would show any time I smiled. Whenever I laughed I would ALWAYS cover my mouth. I'm 23 years old and my face already makes me look so young, my teeth didn't help at all. I decided to do some research and looked for the best... READ MORE

Changed my whole smile

After having braces and bonding on teeth to elongate, my gummy smile still bothered me. I finally went to a cosmetic dentist to discuss veneers, but after they quoted me $30,000+ and didn't even mention crown lengthening..I was a little disappointed. Fortunately, I went to a periodontist at the... READ MORE

Gum Lift. Miami, FL

Hello there, Had my gum lift today and for today I am exctremely unhappy. First of all it was made with a scalpel (old school) which caused me a lot of bleeding and extreme swelling.

Crown Lengthening - Miami, FL

I had my procedure done 3 weeks ago by Dr.Fain in north Miami, fl ... the gums are still healing but the results thus far have been amazing.

After a Year of Debating, Finally Getting my Gummy Smile Surgery. Fort Lauderdale, FL

I went to Premiere Dental today looking for a second opinion on a quote for a gummy smile surgery procedure that I received from another dentist in Miami.

It's been about 5 days post surgery. Ibuprofen has been my best friend since the surgery. Also, my gums are bruised and the inside the roof of my mouth still feels raw. but the bleeding has stopped.

Got Gums Lightened and Very Small Lifting - San Francisco, CA

Since I was getting braces, I figured I might as well complete the process with nice, pink gums! :) The procedure was only like 2 hours or less (with a break). The doctor was really knowledgeable and even told me that I may not really need it because my smile wasnt gummy, but I was insistent.... READ MORE

I've been self conscience about my gummy smile since childhood. I never had it corrected.

I went to a... READ MORE

So I asked my dentist about it and we discussed... READ MORE

I have small teeth and with the excess gum they always looked even smaller. When the dentist told me he could take it away with a laser, I was in! It took about 10 mins with no pain.
