Unlocking a Better Smile: Choosing Crown Elongation

Crown elongation is a specific dental procedure that can dramatically transform the look and function of your smile. Your gum line is adjusted so as to expose more of your teeth’s surface area. This provides many benefits.

Key Benefits of Crown Elongation

Properly performed, this procedure can provide a stable foundation for dental restorations and contribute to their long-term success.

Here are some more key benefits:

Confident Smiles

Deliver a more confident, aesthetic smile.

Some individuals have what is referred to as a “gummy smile,” in which their gums appear excessive and hide their teeth. Crown elongation can help them achieve a more natural, beautiful-looking smile by sculpting the gum line so as to reveal more of each tooth’s crown. In other words, you’ll be able to flash more of those beautiful teeth!

Repair Damaged Teeth

Help repair a damaged tooth.

Crown elongation can also offer significant restorative benefits. Teeth that are decayed, fractured, or otherwise damaged beneath the gum line can pose a serious health risk down the line. Revealing those teeth through this procedure makes it possible for solutions like dental crowns, bridges, or veneers to be placed.

Easy Cleaning

Easier maintenance for better overall oral hygiene.

Crown elongation exposes more of the tooth’s surface to the open environment and, in doing so, makes access easier. Individuals who have this procedure done often find it’s easier to brush and floss their teeth and that they experience overall better oral hygiene as a result.

Correction of Uneven Gum Lines

Sometimes, the gum line may be uneven due to factors like gum disease or genetics.

Crown elongation can help create a more symmetrical gum line, which improves the overall aesthetics of the smile.
