MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Periodontist, Dr. Andres Sanchez, welcomes
Crown lengthening can be used to treat functional or cosmetic symptoms of a gummy smile. Functional treatment may be used to prepare a tooth for a restoration or to treat tooth decay. Many patients with excess gum tissue may not experience negative health effects, but instead notice a lack of self-confidence that causes them to hide their smiles. Oftentimes when chosen for aesthetic reasons it is due to a particularly gummy smile, or one where this excess gum tissue makes the teeth look small. In order to find balance, some gum and bone tissue may be removed during the crown lengthening procedure to reveal more of the tooth and create an even and attractive smile.
Before starting treatment, Dr. Sanchez will discuss each patient's aesthetic smile goals and assess how he can also improve oral health and function at the same time. In order to envision an ideal smile, Dr. Sanchez takes into consideration the size and shape of each patient's teeth and lips. After treatment, he is able to reveal the custom, healthy and confident smile patients want.
Crown lengthening is best performed by a periodontist who specializes in treatments related to the gums. A Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, Dr. Sanchez is highly experienced providing cosmetic and functional crown lengthening treatment as well as other soft tissue treatments such as gum grafting for teeth that appear elongated.
