What is a gingivoplasty?

Dr. Navkiran Dhillon, our knowledgeable dentist, has the skill necessary to offer multiple treatments for your gums and soft tissues. A gingivoplasty is just one of our treatments we provide to improve the function and beauty of your gumline. Most often used for cosmetic purposes, a gingivoplasty in Ware, Massachusetts allows us to reshape the healthy gum tissue that supports your teeth. You may want to consider a gingivoplasty if you have a “gummy smile” or if your teeth appear unusually short. Often times, your teeth are of a normal size but are hidden by excess gum tissue. With a gingivoplasty, we can reveal more of your natural tooth structure to give you a more pleasing smile.

How is a gingivoplasty done?

After applying local anesthesia to numb the area, our team at Dhillon Family & Cosmetic Dentistry will surgically reshape your gumline and remove any excess gum tissue. This process can generally be completed in a matter of minutes.

We look forward to helping you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile of your dreams.
