Some patients feel that their teeth are too short, their smile is too “gummy”, or that their gumline is uneven, covering too much of some teeth, while leaving others the right length. If you have any of these concerns, a simple cosmetic treatment might be just right for you. Your teeth are probably not “too short” at all. In fact, they are more than likely to be just the right length. You may simply have too much gum tissue covering your teeth and hiding your smile.

The procedure

A gingivectomy procedure removes the excess gum tissue to expose more of the “crown” of your teeth. Your gumline is then sculpted to give your smile just the right look. If restorations are needed, a gingivectomy procedure sets the stage allowing your new veneers, crowns, or fillings to have the correct length and shape, giving you a beautiful new smile.
