What is Crown Lengthening?

Crown lengthening is a dental procedure that is performed to remove excess gum tissue that may be covering a portion of a tooth or teeth. This procedure can also be used to reshape the gum tissue to create a more even, symmetrical gumline. At Aria Dental Implants & Perio, we offer crown lengthening as part of our comprehensive list of cosmetic dental services. Our experienced team uses state-of-the-art techniques and technology to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality of care. Our goal is to help our patients achieve the smile of their dreams, and crown lengthening is one of the many tools we use to achieve this.

Expertise And Care Combined

A crown extension is a necessary treatment when addressing issues such as gummy smiles, uneven gum lines, and tooth root damage caused by decay or injury. This procedure involves the removal of excess gum tissue, exposing more of the tooth structure, and improving smile aesthetics. It also facilitates other dental procedures like fillings, bonding, or root canals, while reducing the risk of future dental problems such as periodontal disease.

At Aria Dental Implants & Perio, Matt specializes in tooth lengthening using proven techniques, prioritizing patient safety, and delivering high-quality results. With expertise in comprehensive soft tissue treatments, Matt combines precision artistry and individualized care to achieve both functional and aesthetically pleasing outcomes, helping patients restore their gums and achieve the balanced, attractive smile they deserve.

Dual Benefits: Our Crown Lengthening Procedure

Our crown lengthening procedure at Aria Dental Implants & Perio serves a dual purpose: not only does it enhance the aesthetic appearance of your smile, but it also helps improve your oral health. With careful planning and expert execution, we ensure that the most natural height of each tooth and arch of the gums is achieved, creating a balanced smile with the proper tooth-to-gum ratio.

Once the treatment plan is in place, you’ll undergo crown lengthening surgery while relaxing comfortably with your chosen sedation method. Matt will gently remove the planned amount of tissue to achieve the desired results. Though you may experience minor swelling and discomfort afterward, the beautiful esthetic outcomes of your procedure will be noticeable soon after. With the affordable cost of crown lengthening, you can easily enjoy the confidence and comfort of your new, stunning smile for years to come!
