Cosmetic Gum Lifts / Periodontal Plastic Surgery

If you have a gummy smile, your teeth will appear shorter than they are. Even though your teeth may be the proper lengths, your smile will look unnatural when too much gum tissue is visible. To correct this problem, Dr. Kakkar will lengthen the crowns with a combination of soft and hard tissue sculpting. He will remove excess gum and reshape tissue to expose more of the natural tooth for one tooth, on several teeth, or across your gum line to reveal a fabulous smile.

Patients may also need crown lengthening in preparation for a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure. For a tooth broken below the gum line, or if you have insufficient tooth structure for a restoration such as a crown or bridge, crown lengthening will adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so that Dr. Kakkar can repair the damaged area.
