Crown lengthening is a procedure done to improve the health of the gum tissue, or to prepare the mouth for further restoration to correct the damaged teeth that are broken beneath the gum line. Also as cosmetic uses in order to correcting a “gummy” smile. Excess gum tissue can make teeth look unnaturally short, and might as well increase sensitivity to periodontal infections. Removing excess gum tissue and reshaping the bone tissue help restoring a balanced, healthy look and thus improve the aesthetically pleasing smile.
Depending on the individual patient’s needs, the procedure can be performed on one or several teeth or your entire gum line, depending on your specific needs. Considered a fairly minor surgery, dental crown lengthening is usually done using local anesthesia and is relatively painless. Crown lengthening is also performed to achieve better crown stabilization.
