Your smile plays a big role in the confidence of your
appearance, and we believe you should feel confident every time you share it. Those
with missing, crooked, or stained teeth often struggle with self-consciousness
that invades every aspect of life. In order to feel good about your aesthetic

perform another restorative or cosmetic procedure, it is considered a
functional crown lengthening. For example, if the tooth has an inadequate
structure for a bridge or a crown, crown lengthening may be necessary. This is

Esthetic Crown Lengthening
Otherwise known as a “gum lift”, this procedure is fairly
simple and can typically be completed within an hour. Esthetic crown
lengthening creates a beautiful, wider smile, while also assisting in
increasing oral health by preventing and controlling periodontal disease.
Excess bone and gum tissue are removed from the teeth during the procedure,
exposing more of the natural teeth. Depending on the situation, esthetic crown
lengthening may be performed on the entire smile, or just on one specific tooth.
