COSMETIC CROWN LENGTHENING AND TISSUE RE-CONTOURING

Crown Lengthening in Boston, MA

BPDI offers cosmetic procedures for our patients who want to improve the esthetics of their gum line as well as for patients who may require special treatment to prepare for a restorative procedure such as a crown or bridge. A procedure called crown lengthening adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of your tooth, correcting your gum line and resulting in a more natural and more beautiful smile.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CROWN LENGTHENING
During crown lengthening any excessive bone and gum tissue will be reshaped, exposing more of your natural tooth and evening your gum line. This can be done to one or several teeth, and is an ideal treatment for patients who have a “gummy” smile that makes their teeth appear short. Once the tissue is reshaped, your natural teeth are revealed to be the proper length.

Whether your crown lengthening is done to improve function or for esthetics, patients often receive the benefits of both: a beautiful new smile and improved periodontal health.
