Show off a more beautiful smile with Gingivectomy,

the cosmetic gum surgery

There are people who have beautiful teeth, but they cannot show them off because there is an excess of gum over them. A procedure that is carried out to fully show off the beauty of your teeth is gingivectomy. This is a popular smile design procedure that goes hand in hand with gingivoplasty to create a more beautiful smile. In Somos Dental we offer gingivectomy and gingivoplasty services, which is why we will talk about the process, advantages, and results to expect from them.

What is gingivectomy?

Is an aesthetic procedure that is performed as part of a smile design process. It consists of giving an adequate shape to the gums to show a more symmetrical and aesthetic smile with teeth with the perfect size and shape. In short, it is a procedure that seeks the symmetry of the gums to show your beautiful teeth.

How is the process?

Gingivectomy is performed by removing soft tissue (gum) and sometimes hard tissue (bone) with a scalpel or dental laser. However, In Somos Dental we use a dental laser, as it is more precise. The procedure is minimally invasive, it is carried out under anesthesia and the patient has a fast recovery time, without incapacitating him/her to carry out his/her daily tasks.

What is gingivectomy

Does the gingivectomy process hurt? 

The process, as already mentioned, does not generate pain, since it is carried out under local anesthesia. Once the process is done, pain relievers can be prescribed in case of any discomfort during the recovery week, but the recovery is quick and does not cause significant discomfort.

When can I see the results?

The results are seen immediately after the recovery time of the procedure (1 week). This has made gingivectomy a popular choice as a first step in smile designing, as it can be followed up with other procedures after the recovery time, such as dental veneers, fillings, and more.

Is gingivectomy expensive?

Although not very expensive, can have considerable costs in some dental offices. However, in Somos Dental we have a special promotion for a limited time. In Somos Dental you can get a laser gingivectomy for only $200 (USD).
