Dentist who offers crown lengthening surgery near me in the Bay Area
This surgery is done to lengthen the surface area of the tooth to give it the appearance of being longer. It is performed by taking off a section of the soft gum tissue. While this may seem like a scary procedure, it is relatively simple and patients will find the results extremely natural looking and beautiful! Patients will be given appropriate anesthetics and sedation during the procedure, and after-care instructions will be provided. Our team will follow-up with patients post-operation to make sure everything is healing fine and they are satisfied with the results of the procedure.
Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta start by consulting with patients who are unhappy with the amount of gum tissue in their smile. The entire anterior area of the smile may need to be addressed, or just a single tooth. This procedure is only recommended for patients who have a healthy smile free from periodontal disease, which affects the gum tissue. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, will need to be addressed before patients will be considered appropriate candidates for the procedure.
