Crown lengthening is a beneficial procedure for both restorative and cosmetic dentistry purposes. Patients who have excess gum tissue covering their teeth can particularly benefit from the treatment. It can enhance the appearance of your smile by making short-looking teeth appear full size. Additionally, crown lengthening is a useful procedure when a tooth is being prepared for porcelain crown. When utilized during the restoration process, the procedure contributes to an improved fit and provides increased support for the crown.
As they strive to employ the latest in dental technology, our skilled periodontists, Dr. Sam Morhaim and Dr. Navid Baradarian, are proud to offer virtually painless crown lengthening with the use of the Waterlase Er,Cr:YSGG® system. This advanced laser technology by BioLase re-contours gum tissue with optimal precision through a relatively quick treatment process.
