Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some patients undergo crown lengthening surgery at Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS to alter their gummy smile.
A gummy smile refers to upper teeth that appear too short because excess bone and soft tissue cover part of the teeth. When a gummy smile is eliminated, our Fishers patients can’t believe how it changes their whole face. They love their new smile which reveals pleasing, symmetrical portions of their upper teeth.
Sometimes, a patient needs crown lengthening because of a tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gumline or a crown is fractured, crown lengthening makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary restoration.
Digital imaging is one of the technological tools that helps Indianapolis dental professionals perform crown lengthening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. When a Carmel cosmetic dentist has a highly detailed, 3-D image of the tooth and bone structure, he/she is able to achieve the precision necessary to design smiles to the patient’s exact specifications.
