The crown lengthening technique – sometimes called gum contouring – is used to reshape the gum line to help your smile look more uniform. Additionally, the procedure can be used to remove excess gum tissue in the treatment of chronic gum disease.
Your comfort always comes first and foremost. Crown lengthening treatments are carried out under a local anaesthetic so that you will be numb. You will feel a minimal amount of sensation, such as pressure, but you will be comfortable. Our highly skilled cosmetic dental surgeons take care to remove any excess tissue, leaving you with an even smile.
Healing is usually remarkably fast, and most patients return for a review with a brand new beaming smile!Back to treatments
