Many patients have excess gum tissue that makes their teeth appear shorter and affects the quality of their smile.
We offer ‘gummy smile’ treatment at our Jacksonville, AL, practice to provide both cosmetic and functional benefits. Crown lengthening for gummy smiles can help reshape the gum line to create a more balanced smile. We have extensive experience performing soft and hard tissue procedures and can create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your ideal smile.
While a crown lengthening procedure offers cosmetic benefits, it may also be needed for functional reasons, like to ensure there is enough tooth structure to place a crown or orthodontics. Patients who need a crown must have enough tooth structure available for the crown to fit properly. Dr. Young may need to remove excess gum tissue to ensure an optimal fit for a crown placement.
