Crown Lengthening at VICI Dental. We’re passionate about aesthetics, giving you a noticeably bigger smile and uniformity.

What is crown lengthening?

Crown lengthening – otherwise known as gum contouring – is a term used for reshaping the gum line to improve the uniformity across your smile. The procedure is also used in the treatment of chronic gum disease by removing excess gum tissue.

Is crown lengthening for me?

Crown lengthening might be for you if you feel you have little teeth or a “gummy” smile. Occasionally, this appearance is due to a high lip line rather than excess gum. Still, contouring can aid in marrying the two beautifully. Another advantage of gum contouring is the ability to redistribute soft tissue across exposed areas for sensitivity control.

Does crown lengthening hurt?

No, crown lengthening treatments are carried out under a local anaesthetic. You will be able to feel a minimal amount of sensation, such as pressure, but no pain. Our highly skilled cosmetic dental surgeons also use electrosurgery probes rather than scalpels to remove gum tissue for optimum healing time.
