Do you feel good about the way your smile looks? Do you see an overly gummy smile? The crown of a tooth is the part of the tooth that protrudes above the gums. Your gum tissue may not be sufficient, causing the crowns of your teeth to protrude. Periodontal disease or genetics can damage your gums. Similarly, trauma can expose more of your gum line.
When you think of a smile makeover, you might not think of lasers. But with this innovative tool in dentistry, we can remove excess gum tissue. An Aesthetic Laser Crown Lengthening procedure exposes more of the tooth’s surface for a smooth, even and attractive smile.
Aesthetic Crown Lengthening
When a tooth has been broken along the gums, it may be necessary to lengthen the crown. It is necessary to expose a greater portion of the tooth’s root for the dentist to be able to attach the porcelain crown. During Laser Crown Lengthening, portions of the gums are removed, and the crown is exposed. A surgical procedure or laser technology can be used to accomplish this treatment to create a more natural, tooth-filled smile.
Advantages to Laser Treatment
With laser dentistry, treatment is quicker than traditional approaches. A dentist can complete more in a shorter amount of time. There is a noticeable reduction in healing and recovery time.
Post-operatively, there is less swelling and discomfort following laser crown lengthening due to reduced bleeding. This combination reduces the amount of discomfort associated with the procedure. Another advantage is that patients can return to normal activities within a few days.
The laser lengthening of the crown is quiet. Contrary to the more conventional use of high-speed drills and grinders, you can relax during the procedure. This state-of-the-art treatment can help increase your confidence by achieving a more aesthetic facial smile line.
