Get a Naturally Beautiful Smile with Gum Reshaping

Gum Reshaping

What is it

Gingivoplasty is a treatment to reshape the look of your gums around your teeth. Sometimes you may have areas of extra gum tissue or abnormally shaped gums covering your teeth. A gingivoplasty gently trims your gum line to appear more natural and expose the right amount of your teeth. This treatment can be done along with a gum graft, to add needed gum tissue to areas that may have recession and root exposure.

When is it needed/Risks of not getting it done

These procedures are done for those patients who have unusual gum growth, which forms pseudo-pockets that accumulate food and bacteria underneath. If a gingivectomy/gingivoplasty is not done, there is high risk that the disease will begin to compromise the bone and tooth, leading to tooth loss.

How is it done

In order to prevent pain or discomfort, the dentist will apply local anesthesia along the gum line. They will remove the damaged gum tissue very gently, leaving the adequate gum tissue to protect the tooth’s root. Following the surgery, you will experience minor and temporary soreness and irritation throughout the gums as they heal. This is usually treated with the use of pain relievers.
