Are you tired of having a “gummy smile”? At the International Center for Advanced Dentistry, our team is committed to restoring a smile you can love again. We are pleased to discuss your smile goals and achieve your best smile yet!
Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that removes excess gum tissue to expose a desired amount of your teeth. This is a great option for individuals who have “gummy smiles” or need support for a weak tooth.
There are many benefits associated with crown lengthening such as:
Improves the appearance of “gummy smiles”
Few visits to the office
Increased dental health
Treats an asymmetrical smile
On the day of your appointment, local anesthesia will be applied to the area. Then, slight incisions will be made to cut excess gum tissue. Once the tooth has become more exposed, a dental crown will be affixed on top of your tooth for an aesthetically pleasing smile.
The areas will be rinsed with salt water and stitched to prevent the onset of bacteria. Please follow any after-care instructions and medication prescribed by your doctor.
We know the importance of a beautiful smile to last for many years to come. With a confident smile, you will radiate joy again. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
