Crown Lengthening

Excess gum tissue may be hiding your smile’s true potential. Oklahoma Dental Surgery Centers can help you reveal your smile’s natural beauty.

Periodontal surgery, or surgery involving the gums, can improve smiles compromised by excess gum tissue, sometimes referred to as a “gummy smile.” Crown lengthening is a common periodontal surgery procedure that involves removing gum tissue to expose more of the tooth. This treatment may also be necessary prior to the placement of crowns or bridges if it is determined that more of a tooth is needed.
