Crown lengthening can be a corrective procedure that can help to cure gummy smiles. It occurs when the gums are visible along with the teeth while smiling. It helps in reducing gum tissues so that more teeth come out of the gum surface.
In order to avail crown lengthening, you will need to visit your dentist first. They will initially put a temporary crown on your teeth which will make the fit of the new crown much easier. Your dentist might also ask you to get an X-ray done so that they can completely understand about the positioning of your teeth. Once they are sure that your teeth and gums are ready for the treatment, they will carry on with the procedure.
