Oral Health Benefits of Crown Lengthening
Posted on 12/7/2020 by Dr. Chad Rebhun
Crown lengthening is a dental procedure that makes your teeth look longer and appealing. This is a surgical procedure where excess gum/periodontal tissue is carefully removed to reveal the hidden surface of the teeth. The procedure may also entail getting rid of some bone in order to make the teeth look a little bit longer. This dental process prevents crowns from appearing too close to your gum line or causing your teeth to look shorter. Above all, it improves your general appearance in addition to the benefits highlighted below.
Crown Lengthening Improves Your Smile
Even though crown lengthening is a one-time dental procedure, its benefits are long-term. These benefits include a good smile as a result of a well-aligned gum line and teeth after the procedure. This process helps you achieve smile symmetry if it is done properly. This is because the excess periodontal tissue that causes your teeth to appear uneven is surgically removed. As a result, this dental procedure improves your general facial appearance, not to mention making you more confident than before.
Crown Lengthening Leads to a Better Oral Health
Apart from giving you confidence when smiling, crown lengthening can also improve your oral health. This dental procedure is usually recommended when one of your teeth forms cracks just below the gum line. Instead of having it removed, you can opt for gum tissue removal to pave way for a crown replacement. The new crown will protect your tooth and even save it from further damage. The procedure also helps your gum tissue to hold snugly around a crown or tooth to keep away bacteria. As such, this dental treatment process minimizes cases of tooth decay while promoting your oral health.
