Crown Lengthening

Get a New Look with Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that can be recommended either to help with oral health care issues or to enhance your smile. It’s a routine procedure where the gum is reworked to show more of the tooth, giving the appearance of a longer tooth.

Dental Reasons for Crown Lengthening

An oral surgeon or periodontist may recommend a crown lengthening procedure to help other dental procedures more doable. A severely decayed tooth, a short tooth, or a broken tooth may not have enough surface for a crown. A crown lengthening surgery will add the structure needed to install a crown.

Estethic Reasons for Crown Lengthening

Some people have what is referred to as a "gummy smile." That may not be as attractive a smile as they would like and crown lengthening can help. The teeth need to be healthy, in the proper position and of a decent length for this to make a distinctive difference. Some gum tissue is removed or repositioned, exposing more of the teeth and that creates more of a natural look to your smile. The gum line is also sculpted into a gradual curve. Your smile will be bigger and broader. It takes a specialist to perform this procedure and we have the experienced staff needed for crown lengthening to be safe and effective. Schedule a consult today to see if this is an option for you.
