Your gums play an integral part in your healthy, attractive smile. If, however, you have too much gum tissue covering up your pearly whites, you have what we call a “gummy smile.” It’s a common cosmetic issue — and, fortunately, it’s one that can be corrected with cosmetic periodontics in Florham Park. Keep reading to learn more about the procedure known as crown lengthening, including how it works and whether or not it is the right solution for you.
What Is Crown Lengthening?
Crown lengthening is a way to expose the healthy white tooth enamel that is hidden behind your gum tissue. If your teeth appear too short or stubby in the gum line, this is likely an excellent solution for making them look longer. Dr. Rynar will use the soft tissue laser to remove and reshape excess gum tissue. With this state-of-the-art tool, there is no need for stitches or a scalpel, bleeding is minimized, and the recovery is quicker compared to traditional gum procedures. And because it drastically reduces discomfort, you may not need to have any anesthesia at all. Most crown lengthening treatments are completed in a single visit to our office.
Benefits of Cosmetic Periodontics
There are a number of advantages to investing in your smile by improving the appearance of your gum tissue with crown lengthening and similar procedures. Even though you may not give much consideration to your gums, they provide the necessary foundation for your healthy teeth. And, just like a masterpiece painting requires a beautiful frame, your dazzling teeth only look their best when they are surrounded by just the right amount of healthy, pink gum tissue.
Just a few of the significant benefits of crown lengthening include…
- Improved proportion of gum to exposed tooth surface
- Soft tissue laser results in more precise procedures
- Increased self-confidence with a beautiful smile
- Healthier, cleaner, more attractive teeth and gums
