Crown lengthening might sound a little strange, but what it really means is correcting a smile that’s considered too “gummy.” Sometimes excess gum tissue covers up your good portion of your beautiful, healthy tooth or teeth. Crown lengthening is a possible solution for:
Repairing your damaged teeth – There are so many reasons your smile can become damaged. Gum disease. Trauma. Decay due to cavities. When teeth have been broken underneath the gum line, your Grove City dentist can use crown lengthening to prepare the area for an updated restoration or correct and prevent further damage to your teeth.
Cosmetic enhancement – When you have extra gum tissue, your teeth end up looking small and can even be at an increased risk for gum disease. Talk to us about how crown lengthening can be used to remove unwanted gum tissue for a more balanced, bold smile that you’re going to want to share with the world every opportunity you get.
