Crown Lengthening is a procedure to remove an extreme condition in the appearance of the gums, also known as a gum smile. The teeth of a person with a gummy smile appear short. Their teeth are actually of typical size, but excess gum tissue partially covers them. It is possible to overcome this situation with the Crown Lengthening process.
Why is Crown Lengthening Done?
The crown is the part of the tooth that is visible above the gum line. Some people request Crown Lengthening for cosmetic purposes, while others require the procedure to reveal rotten or broken areas of the teeth. A periodontist, a gum specialist, may perform a Crown Lengthening to expose more tooth structure before fitting a bridge or performing another restorative dental procedure.
Crown Lengthening Surgery
Crown Lengthening surgery is not suitable for everyone. Anyone interested in the procedure for aesthetic reasons should discuss this with their dentist. It is important to have healthy gums and general health before surgery.
Before the procedure, the periodontist performs a pre-operative analysis to determine the new location of the gum line. They will also assess the teeth, gums, and surrounding structures. This information helps them decide on the most appropriate surgical technique.
What Happens After Crown Lengthening?
Healing may depend on the type of procedure and the dentist performing this will give detailed instructions. During the procedure, the area is anesthetized so that the person does not feel pain. Minor swelling and bleeding can be expected for the first few days after Crown Lengthening. The dentist may recommend applying a cold compress to the area to help with pain and swelling.
