Video: Gum Lifts
An important feature of a beautiful smile is that there is only a tiny (1mm) show of gum. Unfortunately, nature doesn’t always follow "the rules" and you may have a lot of gum showing when you smile.
It makes your teeth look disproportionately small and even attract cruel comments. Of course this makes you self conscious, and your face look less attractive than it actually is. You might be reluctant to smile or cover your mouth when you do, and avoid eye contact. This sends out the wrong messages.

Gummy smiles can be fixed by a straightforward cosmetic dental procedure known as a gum lift, often in one visit and without pain at Designer Smiles in Cremorne, on Sydney’s lower North Shore.
When your gums are lifted you will also benefit from composite veneers or porcelain veneers to make your teeth look whiter and straighter.
Gum lifts are performed by myself, Dr Sarkis Nalbandian. I am an aesthetic reconstructive dentist. My aim is to preserve your natural teeth as far as possible and achieve natural-looking, beautiful smiles.
A gum lift is a relatively simple procedure with my expertise:
You will discover how a gum lift dramatically enhances your appearance, yet it is a conservative procedure. It is not an "extreme makeover"!
Many of my patients, like yourself, contact me feeling unhappy with their gummy smile and are happy to find there are a number of treatment options available.
Call or fill in the form to see how we can tailor a treatment plan to suit your individual needs, budget and time pressures.
Thank you for taking the time to explore this gum lift information. I hope this gives you an idea of what I can do for you if you are having difficulty and need help, because there is always hope.
