During crown lengthening, we adjust the gum-line to expose more of your tooth and improve your dental symmetry. This procedure improves the appearance of your teeth and gives you a more natural-looking smile. Crown lengthening can be done for one tooth or several teeth. It is an ideal treatment if you have what’s often referred to as a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile can make your teeth appear short. Once the tissue is reshaped, your teeth will be exposed at their proper and more natural looking length.
Whether you opt for this procedure to improve function or for esthetics, you’ll end up with a beautiful new smile and better periodontal health.
