Gummy Smile?

Gummy Smile?Many people with a gummy smile undergo crown lengthening surgery to bring proper balance and symmetry to their smile. Gum tissue and, in some cases, bone is removed to expose more of the visible part of a tooth. It is a safe procedure that does not affect healthy tooth structure.

A ‘gummy smile’ is a term used to describe a smile with teeth that appear too short because an unusual amount of bone and soft tissue hide part of the crown. Our Casper cosmetic dental patients who have opted for crown lengthening love how their new perfect smile looks and feels. Some of our Wyoming crown lengthening patients also choose teeth whitening for an extra-dazzling smile!

Crown lengthening is not used solely for cosmetic reasons. When a tooth is injured and breaks at the gum line or if a filling or crown comes off a tooth that contains decay, crown lengthening makes additional tooth structure accessible for further restorative work. It is also used to treat some types of periodontal disease.

At Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper, we perform cosmetic and restorative crown lengthening. People in Riverton and Douglas trust us with their smiles. Call to schedule an appointment today!
