Gum contouring treatment for a stunning streamlined smile line.

Crown lengthening is a procedure that involves the removal of extra gum tissue around the upper teeth in order to define their appearance. This simple technique is commonly performed by dentists and periodontists. Crown lengthening can shape the gum line to provide a more symmetrical smile if the gum line is uneven.

Why do I need crown lengthening treatment?

Crown lengthening may also be done for various dental reasons other than aesthetics. Crown lengthening, for example, may be required to support the placement of a crown if there is not sufficient healthy tooth. Periodontists frequently perform crown lengthening surgery to help treat and slow the progression of gum disease.

What are the advantages of crown lengthening?

Crown lengthening, unlike many other cosmetic dental procedures, only has to be done once. In addition to providing a wider, more symmetrical smile, crown lengthening has other advantages. Crown lengthening procedures can also help to minimise tooth decay and gum disease by exposing more of the tooth to brushing and flossing.

What should I expect during crown lengthening treatment?

All gum contouring treatment is done under a local anaesthetic, meaning you will be awake, but the area will be numb. A laser can be used to shape the gum tissue in specific cases. In very few cases, some bone may need to be removed in order to get the desired result. Crown lengthening is considered a straightforward dental treatment, but there are certain complications to consider, as with any oral surgery.

As part of your comprehensive consultation, your dental team will talk with you about all of the possible risks, however unlikely.
