A beautiful smile is an incredibly valuable asset in both your personal and professional life. When you are able to smile openly – knowing that your teeth and gums look great – you radiate confidence to those around you. However, if your smile is marred by an excessive amount of gum or your gum line is uneven, you may feel hesitant to show it off to those who matter most. At LANAP & Implant Center of Pennsylvania in Collegeville, PA and Williamsport, PA, Dr. David DiGiallorenzo offers a comprehensive array of cosmetic dentistry procedures to help you achieve the bright, aesthetically attractive smile you’ve always wanted. One of these advanced cosmetic treatments is crown lengthening.
Benefits of Crown Lengthening
When excessive gum tissue hides the upper portion of your teeth, it can make them appear short and stubby. By removing a small portion of this tissue, Dr. DiGiallorenzo reveals the healthy tooth surface that lies beneath, giving your teeth the appearance of additional length. The gum line is meticulously balanced and made symmetrical with a specialized laser, offering precision and faster healing than surgeries that require a scalpel and sutures. You’ll be enjoying a gorgeous new smile in no time!
Crown lengthening can also be used to prepare a tooth for a dental crown, a restorative measure that helps protect a tooth and offer structural stability following treatment of decay or injury. Dr. DiGiallorenzo will happily discuss all aspects of your cosmetic or restorative procedure before treatment begins, ensuring your total comfort and satisfaction with your results.
