Gum Reduction

Explainer Video

Gum reduction, also known as gingivectomy, is a dental procedure aimed at reshaping or removing excess gum tissue to improve the appearance of a gummy smile or to prepare teeth for further dental treatment. This cosmetic and therapeutic procedure can significantly enhance one’s smile by exposing more of the natural tooth, creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Ideal for individuals with excessive gum coverage due to genetics, health conditions, or medications, gum reduction can also help in improving oral health by facilitating easier cleaning of the teeth and gums.
