It may have been bothering you for years: every time you look at your smile in the mirror, or in a photo, you notice that way too much of your gum line is showing, making your teeth appear shorter than they really are. Fortunately, at the office of Maryland Center for Periodontics & Dental Implants, we can correct the problem with a procedure known as dental crown lengthening.
During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth, to even your gum line, or to several teeth to expose a natural, broad smile. We may also recommend dental crown lengthening to make a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure possible. Perhaps your tooth is decayed, broken below the gum line, or has insufficient tooth structure for a restoration, such as a crown or bridge. Crown lengthening adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored.
