Hayward patients can enjoy aesthetic improvements with crown lengthening surgery
In some cases, patients may strongly consider the advantages of aesthetic procedures. This includes those who are unhappy with their “gummy smile.” A gummy smile shows when patients laugh, smile, or talk with others. Patients often feel as though their teeth appear very short when their gum tissue is excessive. In many cases, a procedure called crown lengthening can help.
Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure done at the Center for Implant Dentistry by our quality dentists. It is an oral surgery that is performed to remove excess gum tissue that negatively impacts the appearance of the teeth and the smile as a whole. Patients find that by removing some of the gum tissue and improving the gum line, the smile will look much more attractive. The amount of gum tissue is in harmony with the amount of exposed tooth enamel, providing a more balanced appearance. This can greatly improve self-confidence for patients who have always been self-conscious about their gummy smile.
Crown lengthening is done with local anesthetics and proper sedation. The Center for Implant Dentistry offers three methods of sedation for patients including IV sedation, oral conscious sedation, and nitrous oxide. All of these are effective in reducing anxieties and ensuring optimum comfort before and during the procedure.
Patients interested in finding out if they are an appropriate candidate for crown lengthening should start with a consultation visit. This is the perfect time for the staff to assess the patient’s concerns and determine if this procedure can improve the aesthetics of the smile in the way patients desire. Our team enjoys meeting and exceeding the desires of patients.
