Should I Get Crown Lengthening?
Crown lengthening can be used for cosmetic or restorative purposes. If you have a “gummy” smile, crown lengthening can reposition your gum line for a “toothy” smile. For restoration, crown lengthening can provide better access to decay, broken teeth, or infected gums. The gums are moved from the tooth and jawbone. Then the tooth is smoothed, if needed, and the gum is reattached at a lower point.
If you’re self-conscious about a “gummy” smile, or are in need of corrections due to issues from poor oral hygiene, crown lengthening may be in your future. Contact us at Family Dentistry of Boynton Beach to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced dentists to learn more.
