Do you feel ashamed to talk, smile or eat in the public as a result of your gummy smile? There are situations whereby individuals have a portion of their teeth covered with lots of gums. In fact, it may even prevent you from being able to undergo dental crown or filling procedure. The suitable procedure to correct all these conditions is crown lengthening.
What Is Crown Lengthening?
Crown lengthening is a common procedure carried out in order to remove excess gum tissue from your gum line for cosmetic or restorative purposes.
Crown lengthening procedure helps to make crowns or other restorations fit much better. Crown lengthening can be done to single or multiple teeth depending on the amount of excess gum tissues.

The excess gum will then be cut and contoured carefully with exacting precision using state-of-the-art instruments.
