Ready to Say Goodbye to A Bothersome "Gummy Smile"?
Do you feel your teeth are too short and your grin is too gummy, or that your gums cover too much of some teeth while the others are the proper length? This is known as excessive gingival display. Dental crown lengthening could be the answer if that's the case. During the procedure, excess gum tissue is removed to reveal more of the tooth's crown. The gum line is then sculpted to complete the new smile's appearance.
Crown lengthening is a procedure that involves removing extra gum tissue and exposing more of the tooth's "crown." The gum line is molded to achieve the proper proportion of gum tissue and tooth surface. This could be done on a single tooth or to improve the appearance of your complete smile.
