Crown Lengthening in Bethesda, MD!

Crown Lengthening is a dental procedure that involves removing excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth’s surface. This procedure is commonly performed to enhance the length and visibility of the teeth to create a more balanced and attractive smile. Our dentist in Bethesda, MD, will thoroughly analyze your oral health and aesthetics to determine if crown lengthening is the right treatment procedure for you.

Benefits of Crown Lengthening

  • Crown Lengthening enhances the visibility of your teeth, correcting a “gummy” smile and revealing more of the tooth’s surface for a more balanced aesthetics.
  • By exposing more tooth structure, crown lengthening ensures a better foundation for dental restorations like crowns or veneers.
  • Reducing excess gum tissue through crown lengthening makes it easier to clean the teeth and gums effectively.
  • It can address uneven or excessive gum tissue growth and help to create a more harmonious gumline.

Who are the Ideal Candidates?

  • Individuals with a smile that appears disproportionately gummy due to excessive gum tissue covering the teeth.
  • Patients who need dental crowns or veneers may require crown lengthening to expose enough tooth structure for a successful restoration.
  • In some cases, the process can address gum recession.
  • Individuals looking to achieve a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile.
