Crown Lengthening

Facts about crown lengthening:

  • It’s commonly used to treat a tooth where decay was extensive, and a crown needs to be placed deeper onto the tooth.
  • Crown lengthening can also be used in cosmetic dentistry, helping people achieve a more pleasing smile by exposing more of their natural teeth.
  • To prepare for the procedure, periodontal charting will be performed, and an X-ray will be taken of the area being treated to plan for what is to be done.
  • During the crown lengthening process, your dentist may use a diode laser or small scalpel blade to remove excess gum tissue from around your tooth. A few millimeters of surrounding bone will be reshaped too.
  • After the surgery is complete, you may experience some swelling and discomfort for a few days, but this should diminish quickly as you heal. Depending on how much tissue was removed during the procedure, it can take 6-8 weeks for your gums to fully heal and remodel to their new shape.
  • The results of crown lengthening are permanent.

Laser gum recontouring is a procedure that can reshape and contour your gums to give you a more aesthetically pleasing smile. It can also be used to remove excess gum tissue or treat uneven gum lines. During the procedure, a specialized diode laser or scalpel is used to precisely remove excess gum tissue and sculpt the remaining tissue into the desired shape.

Laser gum recontouring can improve the appearance of your smile by making it look more even, symmetrical, and aesthetically pleasing.

Generally speaking, anyone who has excess or unevenly distributed gum tissue that affects their smile could benefit from laser gum recontouring. However, it’s important to speak with your dentist about whether or not this procedure is right for you, as certain factors such as existing health conditions may influence its effectiveness.

The duration of each treatment will vary depending on how much work needs to be done and the size of the treatment area; however, most sessions tend to take between 30 minutes to an hour from start to finish.

Immediately following your session you may experience some mild soreness in your gums; however this should subside within a few days. You may also experience slight swelling which should resolve within 1-2 weeks. Your dentist may prescribe antibiotics or provide other post-procedure instructions depending on your individual case.

While serious complications are rare, there are some potential risks associated with this procedure such as infection or slight bleeding in the affected area. It’s important that you discuss these risks with your dentist before undergoing treatment so that you're fully aware of what might happen during and after your session.

The results will depend on how extensive your treatment was and how much work needed to be done. However, generally speaking most patients report that their smiles look significantly better once their gums have been properly contoured with this very predictable and routine procedure!
