Surgical Crown Lengthening:

Surgical crown lengthening is a surgical technique that raises the gums exposing more of the teeth.


Reasons For Surgical Crown Lengthening:

Cosmetically to create a pleasing smile where the teeth and gum display are in better proportions.

Short Teeth.

"Gummy" smiles.


What Does Surgical Crown Lengthening Involve:

The surgery is done in our office with numbing of the area.  Nitrous oxide is often used.

Surgical crown lengthening involves making an incision along the gumline, reflecting the gums and suturing them farther away from the incisal edges of the teeth.

Often porcelain veneers are made to create a pleasing shape of the teeth.
