Reveal Healthy Tooth Structure with Crown Lengthening
Here at Dolan Dental, our dentists are likely to recommend crown lengthening when a patient’s smile appears overly “gummy” or short because of an excess of soft tissue. During the procedure, we will carefully remove and reshape the existing gum line in order to create a much more pleasing appearance and expose more of your healthy, beautiful tooth structure to the naked eye.
Additionally, crown lengthening can have valuable restorative benefits as well here in Wethersfield, CT! For instance, we may need to remove a small amount of natural bone from beneath the gum line in order to properly treat decay. Our team is also likely to suggest the treatment if you’re in need of a new crown but not enough tooth structure exists above the gum line to accommodate its placement successfully. Please contact our practice today if you have any questions, or if you’re ready to schedule a first appointment!
