What Is Gingival Esthetics?
Gingival esthetics, also known as gum esthetics, is a branch of dentistry that deals with the appearance of the gums and their relationship to the teeth and surrounding tissues. The term "gingival" refers to the gums, while "esthetics" refers to the appearance or beauty of something.
Gingival esthetics may involve procedures such as gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, which involves removing excess gum tissue to create a more balanced and symmetrical appearance. This procedure can help improve the appearance of a "gummy smile" where the gums cover too much of the teeth.
