Also called a crown lengthening procedure or a gingivectomy, cosmetic gum surgery works to treat smiles with excessive gum tissue. This “gummy smile” makes the gums look overlarge or bulky. The excess tissue can cover too much of the dental enamel, hiding the tooth or teeth and making them appear uneven, short or stunted, even if they are shaped normally underneath. If your smile is affected by this problem, our dentist will examine your teeth and determine whether cosmetic gum shaping is the right solution.
A gingivectomy can be quickly and safely by our dentist, in as little as one appointment. During your visit, our dentist will safely remove any excess soft tissue and contour the gumline so it appears even. During each gum shaping, our professional team will work gently to help minimize recovery time and encourage healing. Reach out to us today for more information on this treatment and get the smile that you deserve.
