The aim of gingivoplasty is to correct the way the gums surround the patients’ teeth, for example, when the gum line is uneven. During this surgical procedure, the dentist improves the smile’s appearance and gives it a more consistent look.
Gums That Are Too Prominent
As for gingivectomy, its aim is to remove the excess gum tissue that covers the crown, the part of the tooth that is normally visible, too much. This long-lasting procedure makes a tooth look longer and reduces gum tissue that shows too much.
