If your gums cover too much of your teeth, this can have a big impact on your smile and make it difficult to treat any problems that might arise with your teeth.
If you are unhappy with your gummy smile, crown lengthening can expose more of your teeth, giving you a more even-looking smile. The procedure can be done using minimally invasive laser technology for a speedy recovery and accurate, beautiful results. Our before and after photos will show you the kind of amazing results you can expect.
Sometimes crown lengthening is necessary for medical reasons. If there is infection under the gum line, crown lengthening gives Dr. Perez-Medina access to this infection so that it can be treated. Functional crown lengthening is also sometimes necessary prior to placing a dental crown.
