If you need a dental crown but have excess gum tissue, it can be difficult to fit a new restoration and naturally against your gum line.
Donald A. Tucker, DDS, in Buffalo, NY, can perform a crown lengthening procedure to prepare your teeth for dental crowns or address a gummy smile.
How can you benefit from this periodontal treatment?
During this procedure, Dr. Tucker will work carefully and conservatively to ensure that he only removes the minimal amount of soft tissue necessary. We also provide local anesthetic to ensure any pain is reduced.
During this procedure, Dr. Tucker can reshape the gums while he removes excess tissue. He will create a more balanced and proportional ratio between the teeth and gums for patients with uneven or unbalanced gum tissue.
Crown lengthening offers functional benefits for patients receiving dental crowns. By revealing a greater amount of tooth structure, the procedure can give your smile a more stable foundation for your restorative dentistry treatment.
If you suffer from serious decay, crown lengthening may improve your chances for a successful restorative treatment...
