Laser Smile

Gum Lifts and Crown Lengthening

Teeth are not the only part of what makes a great smile – gums and lips also make a difference.

Sometimes gum levels need to be corrected before veneers, onlays or crowns are made – particularly where teeth have been broken or filled below the gum line. Typically this involves cutting and stitching the gum, then waiting six to eight weeks for it to heal before further work can be done.

As New Zealand’s laser dentistry leader, we help our patients avoid the pain, discomfort, expense and inconvenience of such invasive procedures by using advanced laser technology to reshape the gum and bone around teeth quickly and painlessly. This means onlays, crowns or veneers usually can be finished at the same appointment, enabling you to get back to your work and life on the same day!
