Crown Lengthening Restores Health and Appearance to the Gums

A commonly performed procedure, crown lengthening gently and precisely removes gum tissue that is overgrown, inflamed or in genetic excess to create a healthy, balanced-looking gum line. Two types of crown lengthening procedures exist: esthetic crown lengthening eliminates a “gummy smile,” while functional crown lengthening enables placement of a restoration when deep damage or decay on a tooth exists. The esthetic benefits of receiving crown lengthening from Dr. Thomas Layton are far-reaching, leaving you with a beautifully sculpted gum line framing the focal point of your smile.
