Crown Lengthening for a Less Gummy Smile

Crown Lengthening for a Less Gummy Smile

When your gums appear to be larger than your teeth, that can usually be referred to as a gummy smile. It can cause you to feel nervous about showing off your smile in public, but crown lengthening can give you the smile that you’ve always wanted. Dr. Timothy Haffner and Dr. Frederick Bayon at Bayon Family Dentistry can explain how the cosmetic dentistry procedure in Worcester, MA, can improve your gummy smile.

Crown Lengthening Can Rejuvenate Your Smile

When you’ve got a really gummy smile, it usually looks like your gums are much larger than your teeth and can give you a disproportional-looking smile. Through cosmetic dentistry in Worcester, MA, you can give yourself the fully aesthetic smile that you’ve always wanted!

Crown lengthening is when some of the soft tissue is removed, which in turn increases the amount of visible tooth surface. Your dentist can do this to create a cosmetically beautiful smile and it can help if cavities have started to develop in the covered tooth. They will be able to preserve enough of your gum line to create a healthy structure for your smile to thrive in.

Depending on the severity of your issues and the procedure itself, your dentist will give you methods to help deal with any pain or discomfort that you may experience after surgery. You may notice some swelling immediately after surgery, but that will fade as your mouth begins to heal. Once your mouth is totally healed, you should be able to enjoy your newly restored smile and feel the confidence that comes with showing it off.
