      Crown Lengthening

      For a more confident and beautiful smile.

      Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure performed by a dentist to expose more of the natural tooth crown. This is achieved by carefully removing a small amount of excess gum tissue and sometimes bone tissue that surrounds the tooth root. This procedure is used for both cosmetic and functional treatments.

      From an aesthetic perspective, crown lengthening is a valuable tool for correcting a "gummy smile." By strategically removing a small amount of excess gum tissue, it reveals more of the natural tooth crown. This creates a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing proportion of gum tissue to tooth, resulting in a confident and beautiful smile.

      On the other hand, we also perform crown lengthening to improve our patients’ oral function. When a tooth needs a crown or bridge but lacks enough healthy structure, crown lengthening exposes more of the tooth by adjusting the gum and bone level, creating a stronger foundation for the restoration.

      Additionally, this procedure can provide access to hidden problems like decay or damage lurking below the gumline, allowing for proper treatment.

      Process of Crown Lengthening Procedure

      Consultation and Treatment Planning

      The process starts with a thorough consultation with your dentist, discussing your concerns and treatment goals, examining teeth and gums, and assessing bone structure via X-rays. This information helps determine the suitability of crown lengthening and shapes a tailored treatment plan.

      Anesthesia and Crown Lengthening

      Local anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Using specialized instruments, your dentist will then carefully remove excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of the tooth structure as outlined in your treatment plan.

      Post-operative Care and Follow-up

      After the procedure, your dentist will provide detailed instructions for postoperative care, including information on oral hygiene, diet, and medication. You will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor healing and ensure optimal outcomes.

      Benefits of Crown Lengthening

      Crown lengthening, when required, reveals more tooth surface to create a stronger foundation for crowns and bridges, and ultimately improving their longevity.
      Crown lengthening allows your dentist to access and address decay that may be concealed beneath the gumline, promoting comprehensive dental care.
      For those with a "gummy smile," this procedure uncovers more of the natural tooth crown, resulting in a smile that is more harmonious and visually appealing.
