Crown lengthening is typically used for people who have a “gummy smile” where your teeth are covered with excess tissue. This process helps expose more of your natural tooth by reshaping or recontouring bone and gum tissue. This treatment can be performed on a single tooth, many teeth, or the entire gum line, to expose a pleasant, aesthetically pleasing smile. However, there are other reasons for crown lengthening.

There are many benefits to crown lengthening. If you are embarrassed by your smile due to excess gum tissue, this type of procedure will be a great benefit. Here at Mountainview Periodontics, we will remove the excess gums which will leave you with a much more natural-looking smile. We have found that people who have a “gummy smile” only show a fraction of their teeth due to the excess gums. They are embarrassed and therefore hide their smile. Once you come in for your crown lengthening treatment in Parker, CO or Glendale, CO you will likely smile and laugh more in public without the fear of someone noticing your smile negatively.
