Esthetic vs. Functional

Esthetic Crown Lengthening

This relatively simple procedure usually takes about an hour to perform and is essentially a "gum lift." During the procedure, the doctor removes excess gum and bone tissue and reshapes the smile to expose more of the natural tooth. While the procedure can be performed on just one tooth, it is most often done to the entire smile. The end result is that more of the natural tooth is exposed creating a wider, more beautiful smile.

Functional Crown Lengthening

Functional crown lengthening is needed in order to perform cosmetic or restorative procedures if a tooth is too far decayed, broken below the gumline, or has insufficient structure for restoration. In cases like this, the doctor will reshape the gums and supporting bone to allow for adequate room to place a high quality restoration.

Esthetic Crown Lengthening

Esthetic crown lengthening is a procedure which removes excess tissue from the gum line in order to make your teeth appear “longer.” By removing tissue and reducing the gum line, we are able to expose a larger portion of your natural teeth and create a wider, more attractive smile. Additionally, esthetic crown lengthening can reduce your risk of periodontal disease by eliminating excess tissue that is prone to infection.

Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is used to repair gum recession that often results from periodontal disease. When the gum line is lowered, a larger portion of your tooth, and often even the root, becomes exposed and alters the appearance of your smile. Patients with gum recession often complain of “long” teeth and would like to improve their appearance. Gum grafting works by taking tissue samples from other areas inside of the mouth and grafting them onto the gum line in order to raise it to a more attractive level.

Functional Crown Lengthening

This is a procedure in which the gum line is reduced and reshaped as a means of giving access to a tooth that has broken or decayed. In order to restore such teeth, it may be necessary to lower the bone and gum line so that we can reach the root surface of the tooth. Once we have done this, a restoration piece can be put in place.
