Esthetic Crown Lengthening for the "Gummy" Smile

If you feel your teeth are too short and you show too much gum tissue when you smile your teeth may actually be the proper lengths but they are covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this Dr McAllister can perform a Crown Lengthening.

During this procedure, exces gum tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth to even your gumline or to several teeth to expose a natural, broad smile.
