Crown lengthening is a procedure which adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of your tooth. This procedure will improve the appearance of your gum line and will give you a more natural and more beautiful smile. Crown lengthening can be done to one or several teeth and is an ideal treatment for patients who shown a lot of their gums when they smile. Often a gummy smile makes a person’s teeth appear short. Once the tissue is reshaped, your teeth will be exposed at their proper and more natural looking 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.
