For some, gum tissue that extends to low or excess gum around the teeth is a concern. Fortunately, this condition can be treated with a Cosmetic Gingivectomy procedure. This common surgical procedure involves the removal of gum tissue to get a more appealing appearance. In addition, it can be performed to make the gum line and the teeth easier to clean. While gingivectomy procedures were originally performed to address periodontal conditions, it is now widely used as a cosmetic procedure for those looking for an improved smile and appearance.
