Cosmetic Crown Lengthening
Your teeth may be the proper length, but they’re covered with too much gum. When your smile shows excessive gum tissue or your teeth appear shorter, you may be recommended crown lengthening. Crown lengthening is a procedure that adjusts the gum line to give you a more natural smile.
Dr. Nguyen may also recommend crown lengthening as part of plan for your dentist to place a restoration. If your tooth is decayed or broken below the gum line, crown lengthening will adjust the gum and bone level to expose more tooth so it can be restored.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CROWN LENGTHENING?
During crown lengthening, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth or several to even your gum line. Whether you have gum reshaping to improve function or aesthetics, patients often receive the benefits of both a beautiful new smile and improved periodontal health.
