What Is Crown Lengthening?
Our dentists are experienced in crown lengthening to improve the look and health of your teeth. Crown lengthening may be a confusing term to some because it sounds like it involves adding material to the tooth. A more precise term is crown exposure since gum tissue is excised to show more of the tooth. You might consider crown lengthening for cosmetic reasons if you want to fix a "gummy" smile. It can also be performed if not enough of your enamel is visible to hold a dental filling, crown, or another restoration. To learn more, schedule a consultation at Creating Beautiful Smiles in Racine, WI.
What Happens During A Crown Lengthening Procedure?
Before the procedure starts, a numbing agent is used on the treated areas to minimize your discomfort. You may discuss other sedation options with Dr. Palmer or Dr. Smalkoski at your initial consultation to help keep you calm and comfortable throughout the process. After your mouth is ready, the gum tissue is removed in small slivers to slowly reveal more of your enamel, and your gumline will be shaped for a lifted and even look. As soon as your dentist has finished the procedure, she will close the gum tissue to stop any bleeding and then rinse your mouth.
