Cosmetic Crown Lengthening
If you are unhappy with the appearance of short, unsightly teeth this can be greatly improved by a combination of periodontal procedures by Drs. Konikoff, Konikoff, Salzberg and cosmetic dentistry by your dentist.
Although your teeth appear short, they may actually be the proper length. The teeth may be covered with too much gum tissue. We can correct this by performing the periodontal plastic surgery procedure, crown lengthening. During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to more than one tooth, to even your gum line, and to create a beautiful smile. Cosmetic crown lengthening can be done in conjunction with restorative dentistry or by itself as a way to improve your smile.
