Gummy bears are cute but not gummy smiles!
Are you conscious of smiling in public due to your gummy smile?
Is your confidence taking the hit due to your smile?
We have a perfect solution for you! We will be able to address your problem by performing a treatment called esthetic crown lengthening.
In crown lengthening, Dr. Adatrow adjusts the gum and bone level to reveal more of the tooth so that it can be treated or restored. During the dental crown lengthening process, excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to disclose more natural teeth. Crown lengthening can be either esthetic or functional crown lengthening based on the reason for doing crown lengthening. For correcting gummy smile, esthetic crown lengthening is performed. Crown lengthening might be done on a single tooth or multiple teeth based on the requirements.

What are the types of dental crown lengthening?
- Esthetic crown lengthening is completed to help correct the gummy smile of the patient. Mostly, it happens when the gums cover too much of the crown, making the tooth look smaller or shorter than it should be.
- Functional crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that might be necessary if you break a tooth below the gum line or if reconstruction allows a larger number of tooth structures to be exposed for proper support. This procedure aims to change the gum level and provide sufficient room for Dr. Adatrow to restore the area properly.
