What is crown lengthening?
Dental crown lengthening is a surgical procedure performed by a dentist to take away excess gum and tissue in order to expose more of your natural teeth.
Is the crown lengthening procedure right for me?
If you feel like you have a “gummy” smile, then crown lengthening may be a procedure to help improve your smile’s overall appearance. Crown lengthening is also used in other non-cosmetic procedures when your dentist needs to expose more of the tooth structure for restoration purposes.
If you feel like this procedure could help improve your smile, contact Dr. Jennifer Bartlett and her team at Bartlett Family Dentistry. They can help schedule an appointment and answer any questions you may have.
