Professional processes to make the most of your smile
Crown lengthening exposes more of a tooth by removing excess gum and bone. The procedure makes the placement of a crown or cap more effective, especially where very little of a tooth is shown above the gum line.
Crown lengthening can also help people with gummy smiles by removing some of the surplus gum on their front teeth, thus giving them boarder smiles.
Excess gum tissue can also make it difficult to keep the teeth clean and can form pockets that harbour harmful bacteria, increasing the occurrence of cavities and gum disease.
Our dentists will advise whether this procedure is recommended for you as part of your Oral Care plan.
