Crowns and other restorations require a sufficient amount of tooth structure above the gumline for proper shaping. If you need a restoration but you don’t have enough tooth structure above the gumline, Dr. Cook can perform a treatment called crown lengthening to remove excess gum tissue and expose more of your tooth.
This procedure can also be used to correct a “gummy” smile that causes your teeth to appear short. By exposing more of your natural tooth, your entire smile can be transformed.
