Expert Crown Lengthening Treatment

Our crown lengthening in Washington, DC & Rockville, MD has both esthetic and functional purposes. While many patients seek treatment for cosmetic concerns, we provide treatment for a gummy smile to promote oral health, too. Excessive gum tissues can harbor bacterial plaque underneath, increasing the risk for tooth decay and infection. Our periodontist has the expertise to determine the cause of your condition and consider both the functional and esthetic aspects of your treatment. Planning is also crucial to ensure the most esthetic outcomes of your procedure.

Our periodontist will precisely map out the most natural height of each tooth and arch of the gums around them. Using considerable skill, we make sure that each individually treated tooth creates a stunningly balanced smile with the proper tooth-to-gum ratio. Next, you’ll undergo crown lengthening surgery while under sedation, where our periodontist will gently remove the planned amount of tissue. You’ll experience minor swelling and discomfort after the procedure, but the esthetic results of your surgery will be noticeable soon after. Enjoy your attractive, new smile for years to come!
