What is Crown Lengthening?

Crown lengthening is a dental procedure aimed at exposing more of the natural tooth structure by removing excess gum tissue and, in some cases, bone tissue. While it is often performed for functional reasons, such as restoring a tooth with decay below the gum line, crown lengthening is equally valuable for enhancing the cosmetic aspects of your smile.

Common Cosmetic Reasons for Crown Lengthening:

  1. Gummy Smile Correction: Some individuals display more gum tissue than teeth when smiling, creating an imbalance. Crown lengthening delicately adjusts the gum line, exposing more of the tooth structure for a harmonious and attractive smile.
  2. Uneven Gum Line: Crown lengthening is adept at addressing an uneven gum line, ensuring a symmetrical and balanced appearance among your teeth.
  3. Preparing for Cosmetic Dentistry: As a preparatory step for other cosmetic dental procedures like veneers or crowns, crown lengthening ensures that sufficient tooth structure is exposed to support these restorations.

The Crown Lengthening Procedure: A Brief Overview

  1. Comprehensive Evaluation: Our experienced dentists conduct a thorough evaluation of your oral health, taking X-rays and discussing your goals to determine the optimal treatment plan.
  2. Precise Treatment Planning: Based on the evaluation, we meticulously plan the amount of gum and/or bone tissue to be removed. This includes considering the impact on adjacent teeth and overall oral health.
  3. Skilled Procedure Execution: During the procedure, small incisions are made in the gum tissue to lift it away from the teeth. If needed, some bone tissue may be removed. The goal is to expose the desired amount of tooth structure.
  4. Thoughtful Recovery: Following the procedure, a healing period ensues during which your gums and tissues recover. Post-operative care instructions are provided, and follow-up appointments may be scheduled.
