Gingivectomy

A gingivectomy is a procedure that is similar to crown lengthening except that no bone removal is performed. The gums are trimmed and sculpted back to their normal levels and to the desired shape. It is most commonly performed when there is an overgrowth of the gums, often caused by a side effect of certain medications or by poor plaque control.
