What is ‘Crown Lengthening’?

Posted on August 9, 2013

Trinity Crown Lengthening Surgery For A Dental Crown Perfect smiles created at Prestige Dentistry often require crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some clients undergo crown lengthening surgery at Prestige Dentistry to alter their gummy smile.

A gummy smile refers to upper teeth that appear too short because excess bone and soft tissue covers part of the teeth. When a gummy smile is eliminated, our Palm Harbor patients can’t believe how it changes their whole face. They love their new smile which reveals pleasing, symmetrical portions of their upper teeth.

Sometimes, a client needs crown lengthening because of tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gum line or a crown is fractured, crown lengthening makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary dental crown restoration.

Digital imaging is one of the technological tools that helps Palm Harbor advanced family dental professionals perform crown lengthening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. When a Palm Harbor cosmetic dentist has a highly-detailed, 3-D image of tooth and bone structure, he/she is able to achieve the precision necessary to design smiles to the patient’s exact specifications.

If you are seeking a dental smile makeover and live in the Palm Harbor area, schedule a smile consultation by calling 727-789-1980. We are conveniently located at 4140 Woodlands Pkwy in Palm Harbor. When you come in, we can show you photos of Florida cosmetic dentistry clients who are enjoying their dazzling smile that was created by the skilled smile artists at Prestige Dentistry.
