Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening the treatment of exposing the full length of your teeth.  Often times patients find that when they smile their teeth appear to be unnaturally short.  This can be due to a condition of Hypo-eruption which is characterized by tall gum tissue around the teeth, it can also be caused by the teeth not fully erupting out of the bone to expose the full length of the teeth.  Hypo-eruption can be genetic or a result of orthodontic treatment.  Using our Waterlase iPlus laser I can address the cause of your "short teeth" whether it be due to high gum tissues or lack of eruption of your teeth.  A simple examination will help to determine the cause and what treatment is required to correct your smile.
