Esthetic Crown Lengthening
If you feel that your teeth are too short and your smile is too “gummy” or that your gumline is uneven, covering too much of some teeth, while leaving others the right length, a simple cosmetic treatment might be just right for you.
Your teeth probably are not “too short” at all. In fact, they are just the right length. You simply have too much gum tissue covering you teeth and hiding your smile.
Esthetic crown lengthening surgery removes the excess gum tissue to expose more of the “crown” of the tooth. Your gumline is then sculpted to give your new smile just the right look. If restorations are necessary, this procedure sets the stage allowing you new veneers or crowns to have the correct length and shape, giving you a beautiful smile.
