AESTHETIC CROWN LENGTHENING

EXPOSE MORE OF YOUR NATURAL TOOTH FOR AESTHETICS!

What is aesthetic crown lengthening?

Aesthetic crown lengthening is a procedure in which both gum and bone are adjusted to expose more of the natural tooth structure. If just gum tissue is required to be adjusted, this would be called a gingivectomy.

Why would someone desire aesthetic crown lengthening?

Many people are born with a genetic predisposition to have a gummy smile. Those with a gummy smile often have excessive gum tissue that covers the natural biting surface of their teeth. This could be a gum issue or a gum and bone issue. Our periodontal team will evaluate the levels of both your gum tissue and bone to determine the true cause of your gummy smile.
