About Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a dental treatment option which is usually recommended to improve the appearance and health of gum tissue. Crown lengthening may also be recommended to prepare the mouth for cosmetic and even restorative dental treatment options as well. “Gummy” smiles are another common reason a patient may seek crown lengthening, allowing them to improve the appearance of their smile. During crown lengthening, your dentist will remove any excess gum tissue, exposing more of your natural teeth and smiles. Crown lengthening can be performed on one tooth, a few teeth or even your whole smile depending upon the state of your gums.

Why Crown Lengthening?
