Crown Lengthening

Periodontal procedures are available to lay the groundwork for restorative and cosmetic dentistry and/or to improve the aesthetics of your gum line. You may have asked your periodontist about procedures to improve a "gummy" smile because your teeth appear short. Your teeth may actually be the proper lengths, but they're covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this, crown lengthening may be performed. During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth.

This can be done to one tooth, to even your gum line, or to several teeth to expose a natural, beautiful smile. Your specialist may also recommend crown lengthening to make a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure possible. Perhaps your tooth is decayed, broken below the gum line, or has insufficient tooth structure for a restoration, such as a crown or bridge. Crown lengthening adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored.

I found all the staff extremely friendly and helpful. My gums were in very bad shape and thanks to Jennifer and the girls I am now as good as it gets. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
