What is the approximately cost of the crown lengthening procedure for patients in Union City?
Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta and the team at the Center for Implant Dentistry in Union City are dental professionals who work together with their patients to achieve beautiful, healthy smiles for life. When approached by patients who are concerned about their “gummy” smiles, this team may suggest procedures such as crown lengthening.
The crown lengthening procedure is done to make the teeth appear longer. Patients who have a “gummy” smile may want this procedure done strictly for aesthetics. There are times, however, when the procedure is necessary. For example, if a patient needs to have a dental crown placed over a tooth but the gum tissue is in the way, a crown lengthening procedure may be performed to reduce the gum tissue and allow the dental crown to cover all areas of the exposed tooth.
Patients who are interested in a crown lengthening procedure are often concerned about the cost. Cost can vary dramatically. This is why a full examination should be done for patients to get an accurate quote on the cost. Additionally, if the procedure is necessary, as in the case for those who are having dental crowns fitted, it may be covered by dental insurance if patients have coverage. Our front office staff works with dental insurance companies and can determine if patients can receive partial or full coverage for their procedure. This can greatly reduce the out-of-pocket expenses. Even without coverage, our patients are welcome to discuss financing options and payment plans that can make procedures such as this attainable on even the tightest of budgets.
