Crown lengthening is typically performed to improve the health of the gum tissue or prepare your mouth for certain restorative procedures – for example, if not enough of the tooth sticks out above the gum line to support a filling or crown. You may also consider crown lengthening if your smile can be described as “gummy,” where the teeth are covered with excess gum tissue.

Crown lengthening is a common surgical procedure performed by Dr. Bokser who will extend the height or size of the portion of the tooth that is visible above the gum line. The doctor will typically use a local anesthesia and then gradually reshape or remove the excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of the natural tooth. Once Dr. Bokser feels enough tooth has been exposed, the doctor will wash the area with sterile salt water and apply stitches to the gums. The entire procedure can usually be completed in less than one hour.

In most cases, after the surgery, you’ll experience a little swelling, which can be treated with ice and Ibuprofen (or other pain medicine) but generally there is relatively minimal healing time with little discomfort. The area will be completely healed and back to normal within 2-3 months. You will, however, notice the results immediately in a wider, more symmetrical smile.

Dr. Bokser can perform crown lengthening on a single tooth, for a more even gum line, or to several teeth to reveal a broader smile or prepare you for further dental work.
