Your dentist at General Dentist Solutions can perform crown lengthening surgery in Ottawa
The crown is the outer part of the tooth that lies above the gum. Normally, its length and that of the pink tissue should be balanced. However, sometimes the gum tissue falls too high on the crown of the teeth or surrounds them unevenly, affecting the appearance of the smile. To correct this situation, your dentist at General Dentist Solutions can perform crown lengthening surgery in Ottawa.
The main reasons for this intervention?
- Aesthetics: when the gum is too long or abnormally surrounds the teeth, the appearance of the smile is affected. The impression of a “gummy smile” is unattractive.
- Oral health: bacterias tend to attack or penetrate excess soft tissue more easily. These may need to be removed to control periodontal disease. Long gums can also interfere with certain dental procedures (cavity care and other infections, dental crowns, etc.).
