What Is Crown Lengthening?

gummy smile surgeryPerfect smiles created at Rotem Dental Care in Toms River often require crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some patients undergo crown lengthening 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 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 patient needs crown lengthening because of tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gumline or a crown is fractured, crown lengthening makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary restoration.

At Rotem Dental Care in Toms River we create new smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day. Patients from Stafford Township, Manchester Township, and Jackson also come to us for complete general dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!
