Crowns are one of the ways to repair a tooth that is damaged, chipped or cracked.

If a tooth is so badly broken down leaving an insufficient amount of tooth to support a new crown then you may require crown lengthening which is a small a surgical gum treatment used to expose more of your tooth.

Crown lengthening is a procedure that can also contour the gums as a solution to a ‘gummy smile’. It is also used to ensure excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth or teeth to ensure an improved appearance and smile.

What you can expect from crown lengthening treatment?

Your dentist will perform the treatment under local anaesthetic and expose more of your tooth, adjusting the gum and bone level.

The benefits of crown lengthening:

  • Crown lengthening can be performed in a single appointment
  • It allows teeth which otherwise cannot support a crown to be restored
  • Treatment can also treat “gummy smiles” – when there is an excess of gum tissue above your upper teeth thus improving the appearance.

We also offer various ‘soft tissue procedures’ in including connective tissue grafting, correction of recession defects and gingival grafts.
