Top Four Benefits Of Crown Lengthening

Posted on March 13th, 2024

Carson City dentists at Advanced Dentistry by Design offer crown lengthening procedures to enhance your smile and improve dental health. Read on to learn more about crown lengthening.If you have a gummy smile or your teeth appear short due to excess gum tissues, Advanced Dentistry by Design in Carson City is proud to offer crown-lengthening procedures to help you enhance your smile and improve your dental health. Crown lengthening is a dental procedure that involves surgically removing excess gum tissue and, in some cases, bone to expose more of the tooth’s surface. It can be performed on one or multiple teeth, depending on your specific needs and goals. This procedure can provide several benefits, including:

  • Improved Aesthetics 

If you suffer from a gummy smile or if your teeth appear short due to excessive gum tissue, crown lengthening can help remove the excess gum tissue, giving you a balanced, aesthetically pleasing smile.

  • Dental Restoration Support

If you require a dental crown, bridge, or veneer, but your teeth are covered by excess gum tissue, crown lengthening may be necessary to create the ideal space for the restoration, ensuring a secure fit and natural-looking results.

  • Treatment of Gum Disease

Crown lengthening might be necessary to treat advanced gum disease. By removing the excess gum tissue, the dentist gains better access to clean and treat the affected area, promoting gum health and preventing further damage.

  • Better Oral Hygiene

By removing excess gum tissue and exposing your teeth, it becomes easier to brush and floss leading to healthier gums and reduced risk of dental issues.
