    Crown Lengthening and Cosmetic Treatment

    Crown lengthening is used to correct what’s commonly referred to as a “gummy smile” that hides the beautiful teeth underneath the gums. A gummy smile is apparent when the gum line appears to be creeping down over the teeth, making them appear short. During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth and more beautiful smile. This can be done to one tooth, to even your gum line, or to several teeth to expose a natural, broad smile.

    Crown lengthening is a simple surgical procedure which adjusts the position of the gum around the affected tooth.
