Treating A "Gummy Smile" With Esthetic Crown Lengthening


Ready to Say Goodbye to A Bothersome "Gummy Smile"?

Do you feel that your teeth are too short and your grin is too gummy, or that your gums cover too much of some teeth while the others are the proper length? If that's the case, dental crown lengthening could be the answer. Excess gum tissue is removed during the procedure to reveal more of the tooth's crown. The gum line is then sculpted to complete your new smile's appearance.


Crown lengthening is a procedure that involves removing extra gum tissue and exposing more of the tooth's "crown." The gum line is molded to achieve the proper proportion of gum tissue to tooth surface. This might be done on a single tooth or to improve the appearance of your complete smile.
