What Is Functional Crown Lengthening?

In some cases, your teeth are already in great shape and the appropriate length for your mouth. However, your gum tissue may be covering your teeth too much, which can make for a less-pleasing smile. When this is the case, you need to undergo a treatment that will remove some of the gum tissue and make our teeth more visible.

During the functional crown lengthening treatment, your dentist will reshape gum and bone tissue. If you need this procedure on just one tooth, we can do that. However, if you need it on multiple different teeth, we can also perform that for you, as well.

What Other Scenarios Would Lead To Needing A Functional Crown Lengthening?

We may also suggest that you consider a functional crown lengthening in a few other scenarios as well. For example, if you need to have dental work completed, such as repair to a tooth that has been decayed or broken, then we may recommend considering crown lengthening first. This is because we likely won’t have enough room to completely restore your tooth to a healthy state, but crown lengthening can give us that space. Crown lengthening can be used for a variety of different treatments, so we recommend that you call us today to see if it’s the best option for you.

You Deserve A Beautiful Smile – Consider How Crown Lengthening Can Make That Happen

As dentists, we see a lot of different situations in our office. Everything from perfect smiles and pearly whites, to teeth that look like they’ve endured years of damage and decay. However, one of the more interesting things that we see involves gum lines that are covering parts of the teeth. The truth of the matter is that you may have a beautiful smile underneath a gum line that is covering your teeth. And here at CDIC, we want to expose that smile and give you the aesthetically pleasing appearance that you’ve always dreamed of.

To find out more about functional crown lengthening, give us a call today. We look forward with talking to you about these treatments, as well as what’s available for you.
