Crown lengthening is a minor surgical procedure where we use a laser instrument to cut away unwanted gum tissue. This may be done for several reasons. Esthetically, if you have uneven gum lines or teeth that look short, crown lengthening may be used to achieve a more esthetic look. We may also use crown lengthening to remove puffy, swollen gums from gum disease. It does require local anesthesia and is only appropriate for select, minor corrective cases.
More involved cases may require additional surgical procedures. If more complex procedures are needed, we got you covered! With our network of trusted specialists, we can recommend to you local gum specialists and surgeons to help us get to your dental goals.
