Did you know that beautiful smiles are not just about straight, white teeth? Aesthetics come when both the teeth and gums are properly proportioned and balanced together. If you have a “gummy” smile, a crown lengthening procedure restores proper proportion to your teeth and gums. This cosmetic dentistry treatment may seem like an invasive procedure, but through our use of advanced technology and techniques, it is very much the opposite. Our crown lengthening treatment in Arroyo Grande, CA provides you with comfortable and convenient experiences with rarely any downtime. With our expertise and artistry, we can rebalance your smile and transform a “gummy” smile into one of proportion and beauty.
A “gummy” smile may only be aesthetically displeasing, without any functional or health issues needing to be addressed. Aesthetic gum recontouring reshapes the gum tissue around each tooth into a more balanced arch to expose more visible tooth, improving overall proper gum-to-tooth proportion. This may be necessary if your tooth has a crack or decay below the gum line or you require a dental crown . Our skilled cosmetic dentist, Dr. Viorela Bauer, has received training in periodontal plastic surgery from Dr. Pat Allen, one of the most renowned periodontists in the U.S. She is skilled in the artistry involved in crown lengthening treatment and provides the most attractive results for each patient’s unique smile.
Crown lengthening procedures can improve the appearance of the entire smile, giving you a more natural and aesthetic look, without causing major discomfort. Our “gummy” smile treatment is driven by your unique smile goals and how you desire your smile to appear cosmetically once treatment is complete. We will help you determine the best tooth-to-gum ratio for your unique facial shape. Dr. Bauer takes great pride in ensuring each of her patient’s smiles not only function correctly, but are symmetrical and balanced, harmonizing beautifully with the face. Whether you need crown lengthening to restore health or improve aesthetics, our treatment is convenient and safe, providing you with an enhanced and attractive smile you’ll be proud to show off.
