Crown Lengthening – Gummy Smile Procedure
Periodontist Vinings, GA
Crown lengthening can be used for aesthetic or functional purposes. For patients with a “gummy smile”, crown lengthening can reveal more of the tooth by recontouring or reshaping the gums.
In some instances, the tooth may be broken near the gum line, but may require a restoration. In this case, the doctor may recommend crown lengthening to reveal more of the tooth allowing for secure placement of the restoration.
Don’t let a gummy smile prevent you from sharing your smile.
