Do you have a “gummy” smile where your teeth appear unusually short? Then you may be in need of crown lengthening. Often times, normal-sized, beautiful teeth are simply hidden underneath your gums. Crown lengthening is a simple, surgical treatment that removes excess gum tissue and reshapes the gum line for a proper balance between your teeth and gums. Under the direction of Dr. Shuichi Yamaguchi, our kind dentist, crown lengthening can be completed in just one visit to our office. We also utilize the latest dental equipment for a pain-free, comfortable experience before, during, and after your treatment.
While crown lengthening is often used for aesthetic reasons, it can also be used to improve your overall oral health. By exposing more of your natural tooth structure, we can more perfectly fit dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. We are also able to repair breaks and chips that occur under the gum line and treat decay. We will utilize this based on your individual needs and goals. To learn more in Everett, Washington, we welcome you to call or visit our friendly dental team at 19th Avenue Dental. We are eager to answer your questions and help you schedule your initial appointment.
