Uneven Gums

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.

How Are Gums Contoured?

Gum contouring procedures are simple surgeries that produce durable results. The length of the procedure varies according to the number of teeth to treat. Here are the necessary steps to performing this surgery:

  • Your dentist will determine with you the optimal length of your gums for the teeth that will be treated to get symmetric results;
  • Using an extremely accurate laser device, excess gum tissue will be removed to make teeth look the right length;
  • When the treated area will have healed, the patient will have and natural and consistent smile.
