Crown lengthening

Dentist in Antioch, TN

Crown lengthening


Crown lengthening is the process of exposing more tooth structure above your gum surface. The process involves reducing gum tissues and shaving down of bones, so dentists can carry out different dental procedures like fitting a crown. It is also a cosmetic treatment that cures a โ€œgummy smileโ€ wherein too much of your gums are exposed when you smile. Visit us at Brite Smilez dental clinic if you wish to get rid of gummy smiles or have any other dental issues.

The procedure

Crown lengthening is an outpatient procedure wherein the time taken for treatment depends on the number of teeth you have and removing both soft tissues and bones. You will be given local anesthesia so that you will not feel any discomfort during the procedure.
The procedure can rectify broken, cracked, or misshapen teeth. It also helps in completing complex dental procedures like root canals and dental implants. If you do not have enough teeth structure for bridges or crowns, your dentist will first suggest going through this treatment. Once the anesthesia wears off, you might face some pain and discomfort, which will eventually go away.

Take proper care of your oral conditions to recover from crown lengthening surgery. Take your prescribed medications on time, use ice packs, brush carefully, eat soft food and avoid all types of bad habits, including smoking, drinking, etc. Also, follow all the instructions given by your dentist, and in case you feel pain or any other issue, contact our dental clinic immediately.
