Crown lengthening can allow for further restorative work
In some cases, reshaping the gum and supporting tissues provides your general dentist with adequate room to place quality final crowns or veneer restorations. Clinical crown lengthening is a procedure designed to expose more of a tooth’s structure so that restorative work — for example, crowns, bridges and veneers — will be structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing. Clinical crown lengthening helps the restorative dentist save teeth that might otherwise be lost because of decay or fracture. It can also help the restorative dentist create restorations that look as good as they feel and function.
Healthy teeth and gums are they key to an attractive smile!
We believe the key to an attractive smile is having nice teeth along with a balanced gumline. Sometimes the gumline is too high or too low which can make the teeth look either bigger or smaller than they actually are. When the gums are not in good harmony with the teeth, the smile may often look less attractive than it could if the gums were of proper size. People who are unhappy with their gums may be a candidate for the Crown Lengthening Procedure.
