Cosmetic Gingivectomy

 Cosmetic Gingivectomy is a periodontal procedure that is performed to improve a “gummy” smile or to recontour uneven gingival margins. Sometimes teeth can appear to be short when they are actually the proper size but are partially covered by excessive gingival tissue. This condition can be corrected by removing the excess tissue and exposing more of the tooth structure. The outcome is a more esthetically pleasing, natural smile.
