What is Crown Lengthening?

Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that involves reshaping the gum tissue and, if necessary, the underlying bone around one or more teeth. This process exposes more of the tooth’s structure, which can be crucial for successful dental restoration or simply to improve the tooth's appearance when gums are excessively high.

Procedure Details:

  1. Consultation and Planning: During your initial visit, we assess your oral health and discuss your aesthetic or functional goals. We use digital imaging to plan the procedure with precision.
  2. Surgical Procedure: Performed under local anesthesia, crown lengthening involves making small incisions in the gum tissue to pull it away from the teeth. Bone reshaping might also be required to achieve the desired result.
  3. Recovery: Healing typically takes about three weeks, during which we will guide you through proper care techniques to ensure optimal healing.

Benefits of Crown Lengthening:

  • Aesthetic Improvement: For patients with a "gummy" smile, crown lengthening can reveal more of the teeth, creating a more proportionate and visually appealing smile.
  • Enables Further Treatments: Often necessary to expose more of a tooth’s structure for further restorative work such as fitting a crown or a bridge.
  • Health Benefits: Adjusting the gum and bone levels around the teeth can help in maintaining better oral hygiene by making teeth easier to clean.
