Looking for longer looking teeth? Contact us about our crown lengthening service on the Central Coast.
If you feel that your teeth appear to be too short, it could be because they are covered up by excess gum tissue at the base. This is commonly known as a ‘gummy smile’ and can be corrected with a crown lengthening treatment at our Central Coast practice.
Crown lengthening will not only improve the cosmetic aspect of your smile, but can also help to restore damaged teeth and prepare a tooth for a new crown fitting.
Come and see one of the experienced dentists at Advance Family Dental Lake Haven to see if you are a candidate for a crown lengthening treatment.
What is crown lengthening?
Crown lengthening is essentially the removal of excess gum tissue around the tooth. Too much gum tissue may make the tooth appear shorter than it actually is, and crown lengthening is a common preparation technique for restorative procedures such as the application of a dental crown or bridge.
