What is soft tissue crown lengthening?

Crown lengthening is a treatment where a dental professional will reshape or recontour the gumline for aesthetic or restorative purposes. This treatment is done for many different reasons and is readily available for patients at Monadnock Perio and Implant Center. Below are just a few of the reasons why crown lengthening may be performed by Drs. Tae Kwon and Rahul Tase:

  • Restoration of damaged teeth by preparing the gumline for new restorations
  • Addressing cosmetic appearance of excess gums which can correct a “gummy smile”
  • Lengthen the appearance of a short tooth or teeth
  • Reduce susceptibility of periodontal disease with unbalanced soft tissues
  • Creating more space between the jawbone and a dental crown, preventing damage to the tissues and bone
  • Even out the gumline after conditions such as periodontal disease

Is crown lengthening painful?

As with all dental treatments performed with Drs. Tae Kwon and Rahul Tase, patients are comfortable from start to finish with proper anesthetics and sedation as needed. The treatment area will be numb to ensure patients do not experience any pain. There may be some slight discomfort for three to five days following the procedure, but this is mild and resolves on its own.
