Is Crown Lengthening Enough to Boost Your Smile?
Posted on 7/20/2018 by Celeste Tom
Crown lengthening is a common dental procedure, where gum tissue, bone or both are removed to help expose more of the tooth.  It is used mostly for cosmetic reasons, but it can also be used because it is needed to access the root of the tooth for a root canal. How is Crown Lengthening Done?Before the crown lengthening is done, you will need a thorough cleaning of your teeth. Sometimes you will get a temporary crown on, to protect the tooth and to make the surgery easier. Our periodontist makes cuts that pull the gums away from the teeth and exposes the roots of the teeth and the surrounding bone. In general, removing a little gum tissue will expose enough tooth for your dentist to put a crown on, however, in most cases the periodontist will need to remove some bone from the root of the teeth as well. After our periodontist has exposed the amount of tooth required, the area is sterilized with salt water and stitched together. If there is a temporary crown that was used, it will be removed at this time and replaced later on. Crown lengthening is done under local anesthesia. Will Crown Lengthening Be Enough to Fix My Smile?If you are having crown lengthening done to improve the look of your smile, and have healthy teeth, it may be enough to give you the smile that you have always wanted. However, if you have other issues such as and uneven gums or cracked teeth, and want to correct those as well, there are other cosmetic options that you can discuss with us. In most cases, crown lengthening can be the ideal procedure to give you a radiant smile and should be sufficient to fix the gummy look you have now....
