Dentists and Hygienist have a language all their own. This guide breaks down the professional terminology into everyday language.
Gingivoplasty is a surgical procedure conducted by a periodontist to reconture the gum tissue to normal size and function. It is usually recommended for people who have teeth that are too small or too wide or who have a “gummy smile.” This type of gum surgery is used to reshape gum tissue around the teeth to make them look better from an esthetic perspective.
