When you look in a mirror, what do you see first? Do you see your healthy, shiny teeth, or do you see your gums first? Even if your gums are pink and healthy, it may seem like there is too much of them. Did you know that there is a procedure called crown lengthening that can help more of your teeth show? With our help, your smile can look exactly the way you want it.
What Is Crown Lengthening?Crown lengthening is also called a gum lift. When we do a crown lengthening, we remove excess tissue from your gum line, which makes more of your teeth show. There are a couple of reasons why people request a crown lengthening. They may have excess gum tissue that they want removed to have the appearance of larger teeth. They may also want to uncover more of their teeth's biting surface in order to improve their bites. In some cases, you may have an uneven gum line that takes away from the overall look of your teeth. When that happens, we can do a crown lengthening procedure to even out your gumline, which results in a beautiful smile.
How Is A Crown Lengthening Done?There is more than one way to do a crown lengthening procedure. Sometimes, we can use lasers to trim your gum tissue and even your gumline. This procedure is amazing, because it reduces bleeding and pain. We can also use other instruments to trim your gum tissue as well. You may only need to have a crown lengthening procedure to a portion of your mouth, or even one tooth. Whatever type of crown lengthening procedure you want done, we can help! If you are concerned about the length of your gums, and you want to get rid of excess gum tissue, give us a call today, and let us talk to you about our crown lengthening procedures.
