Crown Lengthening

When decay occurs below the gumline, it may be necessary to remove a small amount of bone and gum tissue.

In this case the patient had always had very short teeth and thought that she needed veneers but all she really needed was the most minor gum surgery possible.

The second picture shows her smile immediately after surgery. As you can see there are no sutures.

This procedure adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored.


Procedure
Crown Lengthening procedures are done for both restorative dentistry and/or to improve the aesthetics of your gum line.

Sometimes crown lengthening is done to improve a "gummy" smile because the teeth appear short. The teeth may actually be the proper length but excess gum tissue may be covering these teeth.

During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth.
