Crown lengthening is a dental procedure that comes with a lot of benefits. Our professionals recommend this procedure when you have too much gum tissue. It involves the removal of excessive gum tissue around the teeth to prevent crowns from appearing too close to your gum line. This helps your smile look less gummy and your teeth not to look short. Here are benefits you can get from crown lengthening.
It Saves Your Tooth
In case your natural crown is broken but the tooth can be saved, a crown lengthening procedure can help remove excess gum tissue from around the tooth. This makes it easy to install a dental crown that will help save your tooth.
Reduces the Risk of Dental Infections
Oral health problems like tooth decay and cavities are less likely with normal gums compared to excessive (high) gums. This is because high gums cover up most areas of your tooth, making it difficult to brush your teeth effectively. As a result, bacteria accumulate and leads to oral health problems like tooth decay. Furthermore, excessive gums can trap food particles that bacteria feed on, making the situation worse.
Improves Your Smile
Crown lengthening will improve your smile significantly. It does so by leveling out an inconsistent gum line. Furthermore, the crown lengthening procedure lowers high gum lines, hiding your exposed teeth! Most people have problems with their smiles due to an inconsistent gum line, and crown lengthening fixes that perfectly. Book an appointment with us for a professional crown lengthening procedure that will see your smile improve significantly.
It Supports a Crown or Dental Filling
For gums to properly seal a dental implant, crown, or bridge, the gum line must be at a proper level. The crown lengthening procedure helps ensure that this condition is achieved. Visit our offices for more information on the benefits of crown lengthening.
