What is Crown Lengthening?

One of the specialized services we offer is crown lengthening, a procedure aimed at improving the health and appearance of your smile.

Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure performed to expose more of the tooth structure by reshaping the gum and bone tissue surrounding the tooth. It is often recommended in cases where there is not enough tooth structure above the gum line to support a restoration, such as a crown or filling.

During the procedure, our skilled periodontal specialists at Verity Smile Studio carefully remove excess gum tissue and, if necessary, reshape the underlying bone to create a more aesthetically pleasing and functional tooth structure. This allows for proper placement of restorations and improves the overall appearance of the smile.

How Verity Smile Studio can help

Crown lengthening offers several benefits to patients, including:

Improved Restorative Outcomes: In cases where a tooth has been damaged or decayed below the gum line, crown lengthening allows our dentists to access and restore the tooth effectively. By exposing more of the tooth structure, we can ensure a secure and long-lasting fit for dental crowns, fillings, or other restorations.

Enhanced Aesthetics: Excessive gum tissue or a "gummy smile" can detract from the appearance of the smile and make the teeth appear shorter than they actually are. Crown lengthening helps create a more balanced and harmonious smile by exposing more of the natural tooth structure and reducing the amount of gum tissue visible when smiling.

Treatment of Gum Disease: In some cases, crown lengthening may be recommended as part of the treatment for gum disease. By removing diseased gum tissue and reducing the depth of periodontal pockets, crown lengthening helps eliminate bacteria and promote healing, improving overall gum health.

Preparation for Orthodontic Treatment: Crown lengthening may also be performed as part of orthodontic treatment to make room for the movement of teeth or to expose impacted teeth. By reshaping the gum and bone tissue, crown lengthening allows for proper alignment of the teeth and optimal results from orthodontic treatment.
