Periodontal Gingivectomy Procedure

Lots of people have what’s called a gummy smile, but fewer know about the potential solutions for correcting it. If you think your smile is looking too gummy and it is affecting the way you communicate with others and your general enjoyment of life and sense of well-being, think about doing something about it and visit a periodontist. A periodontist specializes in treating the tissues around teeth, including your gums and the jawbone underneath.

What to Do If Your Smile Looks Too Gummy?

Are you bothered by your gummy smile? Envy Smile Dental Spa specializes in advanced gum care in Brooklyn, including periodontal gingivectomy procedures. A Periodontal Gingivectomy is a surgical periodontal procedure used to reduce excessive gum tissue. Envy Smile Dental Spa has a team of experienced periodontic professionals that can provide this effective gum surgery as well as other comprehensive periodontal services that you may need.

By combining our expertise with state-of-the-art technology, we are able to produce excellent results for our patients who need a gingivectomy procedure. You will find a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere at our comprehensive family dental practice as well as a friendly team of dental experts who are dedicated to making your experience with us is as pleasant as possible.

What to Expect When You See a Periodontist for a Gummy Smile?

Firstly, your periodontist will discuss your concerns with you and will examine your mouth to assess why your smile appears to be gummy. A smile can look gummy when the proportion of your teeth, upper jaw, and gum tissue are not harmonious. Also, your upper lip can affect the appearance of your gums. Your periodontist will assess the amount of gum tissue you show when you smile and the general shape and size of your teeth. They will look at your upper lip and how much it moves upward when you smile. The periodontist may look at the position of your upper jaw in relation to the rest of your facial bones.

Gingivoplasty Surgery for Reshaping Gums

If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your gums, Envy Smile Dental Spa can help with a wide range periodontal treatment options including gingivoplasty surgery for reshaping gums. This simple surgery can enhance your smile by recontouring gums that are unusually shaped or not normal in formation. You may have misshaped gums caused by genetics, disease, or trauma.

Our periodontist can deliver the personalized care and expertise you deserve to transform your smile with top quality gingivoplasty. Although it is most common that gingivoplasty is performed alone, it can also provide excellent results if needed after a gingivectomy or along with a gum graft procedure.

Whatever you specific gum concern is, Envy Smile Dental Spa is equipped to help you achieve the attractive and healthy smile you deserve. Both a gingivectomy and gingivoplasty surgery can establish a healthy gum line for better and more productive oral hygiene. If you are interested in Gingivoplasty or Gingivectomy, our staff at Envy Smile Dental Spa will be happy to evaluate your dental needs to determine if you are a candidate for this advanced periodontal procedure. We will then let you know how to prepare for your surgery and what to expect during and after the procedure.
