This periodontal procedure is designed to expose more tooth structure prior to restorative and cosmetic dentistry and/or to improve the aesthetics of the existing gum line. Cosmetic Crown Lengthening A frequently asked question is whether we can change the aesthetics of a gummy smile because the teeth appear somewhat short. Your teeth can actually be of proper length and simply hidden behind excessive gum tissue. Under these circumstances, a clinical crown lengthening procedure will correct the problem by exposing the shape of your natural teeth. Clinical crown lengthening can also be performed on single teeth to even your entire gum line and create a more pleasing smile. Functional Crown Lengthening If your teeth are decayed, fractured at or below the gum line or have insufficient tooth structure for new crown retention, a clinical crown lengthening procedure may be recommended. This procedure will enable your dentist to perform a restorative and/or cosmetic dental procedure and properly restore a severely broken down tooth.
