Based off my pictures do I appear to be a good candidate for a gum lift? (laser gum contouring)? (photo)

Gummy Smile Correction
Thank you for your question regarding your gummy smile and for submitting photos. I think you should be consulted by a periodontist. Many times the fee can be reduced from the procedure itself. I see that you wear a night guard probably because you grind your teeth and the photos show the edges of your teeth are worn. I would suggest you continue to wear your guard as this protects the teeth from wearing down. I think you're a candidate for a few types of smile enhancement procedures, so please seek the advice from a periodontist that has experience particularly with gummy smile correction.
