Crown Lengthening

Get a Natural New Smile

Your smile is as unique as you are. But for some people, a simple smile may make their teeth appear small or show an unsightly amount of gum tissue. That's where crown lengthening comes on. This simple procedure can be performed on one or more teeth to expose a more natural, broader smile.

Advantages of Crown Lengthening

Aesthetic

Crown lengthening can replace a lopsided or "gummy" smile with a more beautiful and more natural look.

Tooth-saving

Crown lengthening can help save a broken tooth near the gumline that might otherwise have to be removed.

Protection

By lengthening your crowns restorative tissue can be added to help further protect the tooth itself.

Confidence

Crown lengthening lets you enjoy your teeth, while eating, talking and smiling with total confidence.

How the Procedure Works

Step 1

A small incision is made and a portion of bone and gum tissue surrounding the tooth is carefully removed.

Step 2

A small incision is made and a portion of bone and gum tissue surrounding the tooth is carefully removed.

Step 3

Sutures are added and the doctor will do a final inspection to ensure the new gum-to-tooth relationship is stable.

Step 4

Two weeks later the doctor will remove your sutures and ensure you're healing without any issues.

Step 5

Two weeks after your procedure, the doctor will remove your sutures and ensure your graft is healing properly.
