Aesthetic Gum Recontouring
Excessive gum tissue can detract from an otherwise beautiful smile. Aesthetic gum recontouring, or a gingivectomy, is a procedure in which Dr. Gradwell gently reshapes healthy gum tissue. After gum recontouring, your teeth and gums will be easier to clean, and your bright, shapely smile will be revealed.
A gingivectomy is a relatively simple procedure with few risks or complications. In most cases, it can be completed in a single visit, and sedation is available for your comfort. We may recommend a cleaning with our hygienist prior to the procedure to remove bacteria from the area. As a board-certified periodontist with over 20 years of experience, Dr. Gradwell is uniquely qualified to perform gingivectomies (reshape gum tissue).
