If you are unhappy with the appearance of the size of your teeth, a gingivectomy may be the right cosmetic procedure for you. Gingivectomies involve the removal of gum tissue in order to improve the size and shape of your teeth. This can be done as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with other cosmetic dental procedures, such as veneer preparation.
At Lowell Tooth Docs, we use a dental laser to perform gingivectomies, which results in very little pain and quick healing times.
Many people think they just have small teeth, however, the gums can actually play a role in the overall size of your teeth. If you have overgrown gums, we can easily remove the excess tissue with our dental laser. This will immediately improve the esthetics of your teeth.
During a gingivectomy, we will numb the area around your gums so that you do not feel any pain during the procedure. We will then carefully remove the excess gum tissue using our dental laser. You may experience some soreness and tenderness in the gums after the procedure, but this is normal and should go away within a few days.
