What Is Crown Lengthening?

gummy smile surgeryCreating perfect smiles at Shumway Dental Care in Chandler AZ often requires a cosmetic dentistry procedure known as crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Many patients choose it to improve a gummy smile.

A gummy smile refers to parts of teeth that appear too short because excess bone and soft tissue covers more of them than is ordinarily seen. When a gummy smile is eliminated, it can dramatically change the appearance of your smile.

Sometimes, a patient needs crown lengthening because of tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gumline or a crown is fractured, crown lengthening makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary restoration.

At Shumway Dental Care in Chandler AZ we improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day. People from Gilbert, Queen Creek, and Sun Lake also come to us for general and preventive dentistry. Call today to schedule an appointment!
