What Is Crown Lengthening With Premier Dental & Oral Health Group?

gummy smile surgery Perfect smiles created at Premier Dental & Oral Health Group often require crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some patients undergo crown lengthening surgery at Premier Dental & Oral Health Group to alter their gummy smile.

A gummy smile refers to upper teeth that appear too short because excess bone and soft tissue cover part of the teeth. When a gummy smile is eliminated, our Lake Ozark 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 patient needs crown lengthening because of a tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gumline 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 Lake Ozark dental professionals perform crown lengthening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. When a Lake Ozark cosmetic dentist has a highly detailed, 3-D image of tooth and bone structure, he/she can achieve the precision necessary to design smiles to the patient’s exact specifications.
