At The Smile Gallery, we offer a surgical procedure called crown lengthening, whereby gum tissue is trimmed down and reshaped.

Crown lengthening is often performed for cosmetic reasons on patients with a “gummy smile,” an abundance of gum tissue that makes their teeth appear unusually short. In some cases, the dentist may also need to remove some bone as well.

If a patient needs a crown but does not have enough visible tooth surface to support it, they may require crown lengthening to expose more of the base of the tooth first.

A patient may also undergo the procedure to treat a severe case of gum disease. In this case, the surgery is often referred to as a gingivectomy and only involves the removal of the diseased gum tissue.

Either way, your dentist will remove the necessary tissue before reshaping the remaining tissue and stitching it back into place.

The treatment can help prolong the life of broken teeth and can save you a lot of money in the long run. With so many successful cases our team has saved 100s of teeth!!
