Correcting a Gummy Smile or Damaged Tooth
If you have an excessive amount of gum tissue covering the teeth and are self-conscious about your ‘gummy smile’, talk to us about treatment options. Dr. Sawan Malik may recommend a cosmetic crown lengthening procedure to remove excess gum tissue and rebuild your gum line. This is an effective, in-office treatment that can help improve the appearance of your smile and boost your self-confidence.
If your tooth is damaged or decayed below the gumline and you need a crown or another restoration piece, functional crown lengthening may be suggested. Dr. Malik will adjust your gum and bone levels to expose more of the tooth structure, allowing for a custom crown or bridge.
