What is ‘Crown Lengthening’?

Categories: Dental Crowns

Staten Island, You May Need Crown Lengthening For That Dental Crown Perfect smiles created at Staten Island Dental Care often require crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some clients undergo crown lengthening surgery at Staten Island Dental Care 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, our Staten Island 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 client needs crown lengthening because of tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gum line or a crown is fractured, crown lengthening makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary dental crown restoration.

Digital imaging is one of the technological tools that helps dental professionals perform crown lengthening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. When a Brooklyn cosmetic dentist has a highly-detailed, 3-D image of tooth and bone structure, he/she is able to achieve the precision necessary to design smiles to the patient’s exact specifications.
