Esthetic Crown Lengthening
An esthetic crown lengthening procedure can be very effective for correcting a gummy smile’. The procedure is also known as a gum lift and works by removing excess gum and bone tissue so that we can expose more of the natural tooth structure. It can be performed on a single tooth or several teeth to enhance the smile and give you a much wider and more beautiful smile. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia.
Functional Crown Lengthening
A functional crown lengthening procedure may be necessary when you have a tooth that is decayed or is broken below the gum line. In this type of situation, there is not enough tooth structure available for a tooth restoration procedure such as a crown or a bridge. The functional crown lengthening procedure can lower the bone and gums to expose more of the tooth structure and prepare it for restoration treatments. This procedure is also performed under local anesthesia.
