Esthetic Crown Lengthening
For people who are not happy with their smile, esthetic crown lengthening can make a world of difference. There are times where gum tissue has grown over part of the tooth, making the tooth appear short. Many patients have told us that they are not happy with the shape or length of their teeth, and they try not to smile because of it.
During the dental crown lengthening procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth, or to several teeth to expose a natural, broad smile.
Crown lengthening may also be recommended to make other restorative procedures, such as crowns or veneers. The combination of crown lengthening along with crowns or veneers is a life changing experience for many of our patients, as they are proud and more confident with their new smile.
