When it comes to dental problems, you’re used to hearing about cavities, misalignments, stains – all factors that can negatively affect the beauty of your smile. One problem that may sound unfamiliar, though, is when a smile is too “gummy.” We’re not talking about gum disease, although that too can be a danger to your natural teeth. Instead, this is simply the matter of having too much gum tissue covering your teeth. When this happens, your smile can appear disproportional and uneven – a frustrating sight to see in the mirror for sure. When you smile, you want people to be noticing how good your teeth look, not your gums! Thankfully, here in our Collegeville and Williamsport offices, Dr. DiGiallorenzo has the solution: a crown lengthening procedure. With crown lengthening, you’ll be guaranteed a smile that’s both healthier and happier.
Show Off a Five-Star Smile Again
During your crown lengthening procedure, Dr. DiGiallorenzo will not only remove excess gum tissue but contour it as well, making your smile well-proportioned and even shapely. If your gums are excessively uneven, the procedure can only be performed in specific areas instead. Crown lengthening can also benefit you if you’re looking to undergo various restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. If the teeth in questions are too broken, decayed, or worn down below the gumline, crown lengthening can adjust the gum and bone level so that tools and restorations can be properly placed.
Crown lengthening has multiple benefits. It increases the functionality of your teeth, improves the aesthetic of your smile, and it can even result in improved periodontal health. You’ll be able to eat, speak, and smile at the world around you, embarrassment-free!
Please call either or Collegeville or Williamsport offices to learn more about crown lengthening, or if you’d like to go ahead and schedule a consultation with Dr. DiGiallorenzo. Our team is committed to providing the Philadelphia area and beyond with durable and personalized care that puts your health first.
