If you have a tooth that has broken or decayed below the gum line, the difficult placement of the damage can complicate the healing process. However, with our crown lengthening process, even these difficult teeth can be repaired and have you smiling again soon.
We can use this same technology aesthetically, to improve your smile and boost your confidence at the same time. WIth our crown lengthening process, you can say goodbye to gummy smiles.
Crown lengthening for damaged teeth
When a tooth is damaged below the gum line, the difficulty is that there often isn’t enough of the problem-area of the tooth exposed for dental work to be done. Fortunately, with our dental technology, we can now adjust gum and bone levels to reveal the work that needs doing. This allows us to repair even teeth with deep damage.
Once the tooth has been exposed, further work can be done and any pain or decay you might be experiencing will soon soon be a thing of the past. In short, crown lengthening is a straightforward process to put you on track for tooth repair!
Crown lengthening for gummy smiles
Beyond its medical benefits, crown lengthening might be exactly what you’ve been looking for to refresh your smile. If you’ve ever been concerned that your gums extend too far down your teeth, causing a “gummy” smile, this could be the solution.
Even normal-sized teeth can look small and out of place if they are covered by excessive gum tissue. With this treatment, we can adjust the level of your gum tissue to give you a more natural and symmetrical appearance. We believe that this treatment can give your smile, and your self-confidence, a real boost.

Another type of gum tissue surgery called crown-lengthening is sometimes needed. If a tooth is decayed or broken below the gum line, too little of the tooth is exposed to adequately prepare the tooth for restoration. In the crown lengthening procedure, we adjust the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth and allow restoration.
Crown-lengthening is sometimes performed strictly to improve the appearance of your smile when teeth may actually be the proper size, but they appear too short because they are covered by too much gum tissue. This can result in a “gummy” appearance of the teeth. Crown-lengthening can set the gum line at a more natural, symmetrical, and attractive level.
