Crown Lengthening

General practitioners often require a crown lengthening or a"gum lift" procedure prior to restoration of broken or severely decayed teeth. This cosmetic surgery adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored.

When decay occurs below the gumline, it may be necessary to remove a small amount of bone and gum tissue. Dr. Fleming may ask for this procedure before he or she makes a new crown for your tooth.

Crown Lengthening procedures are also done to improve the esthetics of your gum line. A "gummy" smile may cause the teeth to appear short. The teeth may actually be the proper length but excess gum tissue may be covering these teeth. Excessive or uneven gums can be corrected with this procedure, resulting in a more even, pleasing smile.

During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, please ask Dr. Fleming if this proceudre would work for you.
