What is Crown Lengthening?

Crown Lengthening is usually required if there isn’t enough tooth structure in place to hold a Dental Crown on its own. Crown Lengthening reduces the gingival tissue (gums) and also the bone when required. This is so that more of the tooths natural structure is above the gum’s surface. This is to ensure that the Dental Crown can fit properly to the natural tooth structure, this allows for better oral hygiene and aesthetics.

Do you have a gummy smile? Are you unhappy with the way your teeth look when you smile? Then this could be the treatment option for you. However, you will need a full consultation with one of our SmileBox Doctors so that they can evaluate your smile to see if this is the right treatment for you.

You can experience some bleeding at the surgical site(s) after the procedure. You may also experience sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. The sensitivity should ease with time. However, if you are concerned about your healing, make sure you call our clinic so we can offer you advice tailored to you individually.

No, the procedure is done using local anaesthetic. Therefore, you shouldn’t feel a thing!

This varies on the complexity of the case and the number of teeth that are being treated. Crown Lengthening can usually be done in one visit, if you are having Dental Crowns this takes multiple appointments at the clinic.
