Crown Lengthening

Transforming The Experience of Dentistry Since 2000

If you can't smile fully because of your short-looking teeth, an esthetic crown lengthening procedure in Solana Beach could be the solution you've been waiting for. This lesser-known dental treatment can dramatically transform a gummy smile. 

What Is Esthetic Crown Lengthening?

Esthetic crown lengthening is a simple surgical procedure designed to reshape the gums at the tooth's base to reveal more of the healthy tooth structure underneath. Our dentist recommends this treatment for patients with teeth that appear uneven or short due to excessive gingival tissue. In some cases, they perform this procedure to help dental restorations fit more appropriately over teeth.

What Happens During Esthetic Crown Lengthening?

Our skilled and experienced dentist will numb the area by administering a local anesthetic. They also provide sedatives to help you relax and feel more comfortable during surgery. Next, they'll remove the excess gum tissue from your teeth before contouring the gums to create a more balanced and beautiful smile.

What Are the Benefits of Esthetic Crown Lengthening?

  • It Boosts Your Confidence – If you have a gummy smile, your teeth may look small and won't be properly proportioned for your mouth. For this reason, you probably feel self-conscious about flashing your winning smile in photos or social events. Since esthetic crown lengthening makes your teeth appear longer and more symmetrical, it dramatically enhances your smile and boosts confidence.
  • It Improves Gum Health – Excessive gum tissue increases the likelihood of plaque and bacteria accumulating around your teeth. Over time, plaque buildup could lead to gum disease. Esthetic crown lengthening improves gum health by removing excess gingival tissue.
  • It Promotes Better Oral Hygiene – Excess gum tissue can make cleaning the area around your teeth challenging. Esthetic crown lengthening allows for easier brushing and flossing, improving oral hygiene and reducing your risk of oral health issues.
