What is ‘Crown Lengthening’?
Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some clients undergo crown lengthening surgery at Duffield Dentistry to alter their gummy smile.
A gummy smile refers to upper teeth that appear too short because excess bone and soft tissue covers part of the teeth. When a gummy smile is eliminated, our Royal Oak 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 client needs crown lengthening because of tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gum line 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 Birmingham, MI advanced family dental professionals perform crown lengthening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. When a Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist has a highly-detailed, 3-D image of tooth and bone structure, he/she is able to achieve the precision necessary to design smiles to the patient’s exact specifications.
