For patients who feel they need to fix their “gummy” smiles, Cattafesta Family & Cosmetic Dentistry provides crown lengthening services to help reshape the gum line and enhance the appearance of your smile.
What is Crown Lengthening?
Some people have a “gummy mouth.” This simply means their gums have grown over their teeth, making them appear smaller than they should!
Crown lengthening can help! During the procedure, our skilled dentists reshape the excess gum and bone tissue you have. This allows your teeth to be more visible. The procedure can be done to one or two teeth, though it may need to be done to your whole mouth!
Dental Crown Lengthening
We may also ask if you want to do dental crown lengthening at the same time. We do this whenever you have damaged teeth whether from decay or other damage. Our dentists will still reshape the gum and bone tissue, but they will also restore your bad teeth.
If you have any questions about crown lengthening or would like to be seen, don’t hesitate to contact us today at 703-620-4050.
