Do you think you have tiny teeth or too much gum when you smile?
You may wonder about procedures to improve a "gummy smile" because your teeth appear short. Your teeth may actually be the proper lengths, but they're covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this, Dr. Romano can perform an Aesthetic Clinical Crown Lengthening to expose your hidden teeth with a Diode Laser
During the dental crown lengthening procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of your natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth,or to several teeth to expose a natural, broad smile.
As a Preparation for final restorative or cosmetic dental procedure
Dr. Romano 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 proper final 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 properly restored.
