Crown lengthening is been done with the benefit of laser therapy. The laser creates a more precise treatment that results in faster healing, minimal bleeding and discomfort. In most cases, the patient can return to work the same day.

Crown Lengthening


A crown lengthening procedure is done for restorative dentistry and also to improve the aesthetics of one’s smile. Prior to restoration, if a tooth is broken or severely decayed, this procedure may be needed to adjust the gum and bone level in order for the area to be properly restored.

Sometimes crown lengthening is done to improve a “gummy” smile because the teeth appear short. The teeth may actually be the proper length but excess gum tissue may be covering these teeth. During this procedure, excess gum tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth.

In recent years, crown lengthening has been done with the benefit of laser therapy. The laser creates a more precise treatment that results in faster healing, minimal bleeding and discomfort. In most cases, the patient can return to work the same day.
