Permanently and Safely Reduce the Look of a Gummy Smile
Our gums have a purpose: protecting the surrounding teeth and keeping your mouth healthier. However, no one likes to see their gums creeping too far up their teeth. Many patients complain of “gummy” smiles, which is why our office routinely offers crown lengthening treatments. This in-house process handled under local anesthetics is often used with laser technology, deeming it minimally-painful and effective. Get a new smile in a day!
Crown Lengthening Offers Function With Added Cosmetic Benefits
Having gums that go too far up your teeth is not just a cosmetic issue. It can also create functional problems:
- Your teeth may decay below the gum line, and without crown lengthening, can make it difficult to clean those areas.
- You may want to add a crown (sometimes called a cap) to a tooth, but the gum is too high on the tooth.
- Your gums are making it a challenge to keep your teeth clean, which could lead to problems with hygiene or gum disease.
Why risk the damage and problems that can come from a gummy smile? Laser crown lengthening is a preferred way to remove extra, unneeded soft gum tissues and reshape the entire gum line. Thanks to technological advances, we can treat you rapidly, giving instant results. You will be shocked at how much of an impact this comfortable and routine procedure can make.
