Crown lengthening can improve your smile
Crown lengthening is a dental cosmetic procedure. It is generally used on patients who feel that their teeth are too small to create a beautiful smile. This procedure is also sometimes called a gum lift.
A crown lengthening procedure is a type of oral surgery. In order to make the teeth appear longer a dentist will remove excess gum tissue, which will make the individual teeth look longer and taller. In some situations the dentists may even remove some the bone surrounding the teeth. Most of the time this procedure is performed in order to improve the aesthetic value of the face, but in some cases it can be used to help treat certain medical problems, such as providing space for fillings and porcelain crowns.
A crown lengthening procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic. The dentist will numb the area, then they will make a series of small slits in the gums to pull them away from the teeth. Any excess gum tissue will be removed, as well as a tiny amount of bone if necessary. Once the proper amount of gum tissue and bone is removed the gums are cleaned and stitched up. The results will be longer individual teeth.
Many patients pair crown lengthening with dermal filler treatment to create a subtle plumping effect in the lips. Together this can give your smile a more aesthetic appearance. Dermal fillers like Restylane, are administered by trained professionals at Parrock Street Dental and Implant Centre, and comprise a series of injections to your desired target area such as the lips. The plumping effect becomes visible immediately after treatment and can last for a number of months.
Crown lengthening procedures can help patients who feel that their smile is too ‘gummy’. It can also help increase the amount of tooth space available to apply veneers or prevent tooth problems. This procedure can also fix uneven or excessive gum lines.

I came to see Rik to have dental implants, I also needed a bone graft procedure all of which I was very nervous about. Rik was very sincere. I had a bone graft, dental implants and veneers. I am 100% happy with the result and would sincerely recommend Rik to everyone!
“I came here as my son recommended Parrock Dental, and my teeth were badly worn at the front and I needed dental implants at the rear to replace missing teeth. Overall I’ve been very please, it’s given me a lot more confidence with my smile, and chewing is now really good.”
