Crown lengthening can give you a smile with the optimum amount of teeth on show creating a more proportioned, attractive smile by lengthening the crown of the teeth. It is the cosmetic procedure for a ‘gummy smile’.
The extra gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. It can involve a single tooth to make the gum line even or several teeth to create a beautiful smile.
A local anaesthetic is used to numb the area so that you do not feel any pain.
