Cosmetic Crown Lengthening & Tissue Re-contouring

A “Gummy Smile” can be greatly improved through the process of a cosmetic crown lengthening and tissue re-contouring. Whether your crown lengthening is done to improve function or for esthetics, patients often receive the benefits of both: a beautiful new smile and improved periodontal health.

It is fairly common to have asymmetry in the scalloping of the gingiva around the teeth, which can detract significantly from the overall appearance of the smile. Through the use of lasers and surgical sculpting devices, Dr. John Potter can shape and create symmetry of the teeth and gums to enhance a patient’s beautiful smile.

Crown lengthening is a procedure which adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of your tooth. This procedure will improve the appearance of your gum line and will give you a more natural and more beautiful smile. Crown lengthening can be done to one or several teeth and is an ideal treatment for patients who show a lot of their gums when they smile. Often a gummy smile makes a person’s teeth appear short. Once the tissue is reshaped, your teeth will be exposed at their proper and more natural looking length.
