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.
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.
