What Is Crown Lengthening?

gummy smile surgeryPerfect smiles created at Masterworks Dentistry in Bakersfield sometimes need crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some patients undergo crown lengthening to improve a 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.
