When you and your restorative dentist decide to save a tooth, but there is not enough tooth structure left to build a crown on top of it, crown lengthening is the solution.
Do you think you have a “gummy smile”? Or, do the margins of your gums not match up and look crooked? If so you may be a candidate for esthetic crown lengthening. Sometimes the gum tissue around one’s front teeth creeps up the surface of the tooth too much, leaving them with teeth that look short and a gummy smile. A simple surgical procedure can fix this and generate the esthetic smile you desire!
