Crown lengthening removes excess gum tissue. If you have a gummy smile, it likely means the gum tissue covers more of the tooth than normal.

Although the tooth is actually the right length, the excess gum tissue makes the tooth appear short.

In addition to aesthetic reasons, your dentist might recommend crown lengthening if you need a crown due to worn or decayed teeth and you do not have sufficient length of the tooth above the gum line to finish the restoration.

During this standard surgical procedure, your dentist reshapes the excess gum tissue and bone so that more of your natural tooth shows above the gum line.

Your dentist can perform the procedure on one or more teeth.
