What Happens During A Crown Lengthening Treatment?

Crown lengthening is a common dental procedure used to improve the appearance of teeth and gummy smiles or to support restoration work. Here’s a quick overview of the treatment.

Key takeaways:

– You will be given a mild local anaesthetic to numb the area.

– The surgeon or periodontist will then remove a tiny amount of gum tissue.

– You can resume your usual daily routine the day after treatment.

Talk to your dentist is you need to discuss any other concerns or know more about the after-care details.
