We all dream of having the perfect smile that beams from ear to ear. Here at The Smile Boutique, we know firsthand how important it is to feel happy and confident with your teeth. Unfortunately, a lot of us are still embarrassed about the one thing that people supposedly notice about us first. That’s where the procedure of crown lengthening can come in to help improve your self-esteem. Especially if you’re someone who is unhappy with their so-called gummy smile.
A ‘gummy smile’ usually refers to when a patient has excessive or uneven gum tissue. This makes your teeth seem disproportionately sized to the gum line. Thankfully, with our highly-effective crown lengthening procedure, your gummy smile can be transformed into the ideal smile you’ve always dreamed of.
To decide whether aesthetic crown lengthening is the right procedure for you, let’s take a look at what the treatment involves and what our dentist gum specialists can do to turn your frown upside down once and for all.
Aesthetic crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that exposes a greater amount of tooth structure. It’s commonly used in cases of fractured or decayed teeth when there is not much or not enough tooth structure remaining to support a crown. So lengthening the tooth allows a dental crown to be fitted and therefore restores the complete structure.
Crown lengthening can also include the carving of the gum line to make a smile less gummy and more symmetrical. By removing excess gum tissue around the crown line, your teeth can be made to appear longer.
Unlike the treatment of gum contouring, crown lengthening is more commonly carried out under local anaesthetic to ensure your comfort. After numbing the area, our gum specialists work with the utmost care to remove any excess gum tissue using minor incisions and reshape any intruding bone tissue if necessary. Whether it’s one tooth, a few, or all of your teeth, the procedure aims to expose the crown and lengthen your teeth for a symmetrical and less gummy smile.
Everyone deserves to have self-confidence when it comes to smiling. If you’re overwhelmingly unhappy with your gummy smile, The Smile Boutique would love to put the spring back in your step with the cosmetic correction that you’ve always wanted. Please be aware that as this is a minor surgical procedure, the average recovery time after crown lengthening is usually a maximum of 12 weeks depending on the extent of your treatment.
Our crown lengthening cost here at The Smile Boutique depends on your personal dental needs. Please feel free to call us on 01733 551 534 to book a consultation and discuss how you can start your crown lengthening procedure with our specialist team.
