What Is Crown Lengthening?

gummy smile surgeryPerfect smiles created at Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin often require crown lengthening, a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some patients undergo crown lengthening surgery 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, 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 patient needs crown lengthening because of tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gumline or a crown is fractured, crown lengthening makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary restoration.

Digital imaging is one of the technological tools that helps perform crown lengthening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. With a highly-detailed, 3-D image of tooth and bone structure, we can achieve the precision necessary to design smiles to the patient’s exact specifications.

At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin we offer general and cosmetic dentistry services. Call today to schedule an appointment.
