Dental Crown Lengthening

Do you want to achieve a balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile? You’ve come to the right place! Our dental crown lengthening procedure can help enhance the appearance of your teeth and gums, giving you the confidence to show off your grin.

What is Dental Crown Lengthening?

Dental crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that reshapes the gum tissue and bone surrounding a tooth to expose more of its surface. This treatment is commonly performed to create more tooth structure for a dental crown or to address excessive gum tissue covering the teeth (gummy smile). By adjusting the gumline, dental crown lengthening can improve the proportion and symmetry of your smile.

How to Know if This Treatment is Right for You

Dental crown lengthening is primarily performed for restorative purposes to create adequate space between the tooth’s natural crown and the gumline. This can be beneficial if you have a tooth that’s broken, decayed, or insufficiently exposed for a dental crown. In some cases, dental crown lengthening may be recommended to address gum disease or infection by making the affected area easier to access and clean.

How to Know if This Treatment is Right for You

If you feel your smile is overshadowed by excessive gum tissue, dental crown lengthening can create a more balanced and attractive smile by exposing more of your teeth. Gingival contouring can also create a more symmetrical and proportional smile. Unlike dental crown lengthening, this service primarily removes excess gum tissue rather than bone tissue.

The Dental Crown Lengthening Procedure

Before the procedure begins, we’ll ensure your comfort by administering local anesthesia to numb the treatment area. We will carefully remove excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth surface and sculpt the gumline to achieve a natural and balanced appearance.

In some cases, we may need to remove a small amount of bone tissue to create adequate space for the dental crown. This step ensures a proper fit and long-term stability. After the gum and bone are reshaped, we’ll place sutures to promote healing.
