Aesthetic and Functional Crown Lengthening

A pleasing smile includes not only beautiful white teeth but also pink, healthy gums joining them together. We also offer other procedures to help you improve upon the aesthetics or appearance of your gum line.

In addition to performing procedures to treat periodontal disease we also perform procedures on the gum and supporting bone to improve the aesthetics or appearance of your gum line or to lay the groundwork for restorative or cosmetic dental treatment. These procedures include the following:

Functional Crown Lengthening

This procedure is done to expose more natural tooth structure so a tooth can be properly restored. This is often the case for teeth that have decayed or broken below the gum line. During this procedure, the gum and bone are reshaped to expose more natural tooth structure. It may be done to one tooth or several teeth.

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening

This procedure is done to correct a “gummy” smile or to even the gum line. It may be done to one tooth or several teeth.
