 Crown Lengthening

Post treatment instructions

Our office specializes in periodontal procedures which serve as the foundation for beautiful and long-lasting restorative procedures.

In many cases of dental decay, tooth fracture, or even in instances where an individual has "short" teeth, a crown lengthening procedure will allow your restorative dentist to properly construct an esthetic and functional crown, bridge, or restoration.

Crown lengthening is a simple surgical procedure in which Dr. Herman adjusts the position of the gum around the affected tooth, thereby providing a more solid tooth on which to anchor the restoration of choice. A functional crown lengthening will help you regain a beautiful smile and allow you to eat and speak with comfort and confidence.

A purely esthetic crown lengthening procedure to correct a "gummy" smile is often referred to as Gum Contouring.
