Soft tissue removal

A simple procedure with great results.

Cosmetic gum surgery, or crown lengthening, is a simple treatment for patients whose appearance is affected by what is sometimes called a “gummy smile.” This simply means the teeth appear shorter due to excessive gum tissue. Gum tissue may appear too bulky, or it may look like the gums come down too far over your teeth. In most cases, the teeth are actually a normal shape and length under the gums.

Quick and Easy

An excessive gingival display is easily and safely addressed with a simple gum surgery where our dentist will remove a small amount of the gum tissue to reveal your natural tooth structure and give you a smile you can be confident sharing. Cosmetic gum surgery is a very simple and common procedure which can usually be done in only one appointment.
