What is ‘Crown Lengthening’?

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

gummy smile surgery Perfect smiles created at Almeida & Bell Cosmetic, Implant & Sedation Dentistry often require crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some clients undergo crown lengthening surgery at Almeida & Bell Cosmetic, Implant & Sedation Dentistry to alter their gummy smile.

A gummy smile refers to upper teeth that appear too short because excess bone and soft tissue covers part of the teeth. When a gummy smile is eliminated, our Colorado patients can’t believe how it changes their whole face. They love their new smile which reveals pleasing, symmetrical portions of their upper teeth.

Sometimes, a client needs crown lengthening because of tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gum line or a dental crown is fractured, crown lengthening makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary restoration.

Digital imaging is one of the technological tools that helps Colorado advanced cosmetic dental professionals perform crown lengthening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. When a Colorado cosmetic dentist has a highly-detailed, 3-D image of tooth and bone structure, he/she is able to achieve the precision necessary to design smiles to the patient’s exact specifications.
