This procedure helps treat your “gummy” smile. A gummy smile often occurs when the teeth look too short. Sometimes your teeth are actually the right size, but you have extra gum tissue growing over them that needs to be corrected. We can reshape the gumline on one tooth or on several teeth to even out the gums so that your teeth and smile look more natural.
Your dentist may recommend crown lengthening before you have new veneers or crowns placed on your teeth to adjust the bone and gum levels so that your new teeth will be as ideal as possible. Your dentist and periodontist will work together to restore your teeth to a natural beautiful smile.
