A smile that shows too much gum and too little teeth, is often referred to as a “gummy smile.” A surgical procedure can be performed to improve the appearance of the smile by removing excess gum tissue and possibly bone to expose more of a tooth’s surface making the tooth appear longer. Crown lengthening is also performed when there isn’t enough tooth structure in place for a crown to attach to. By reducing gum tissue, a crown can be properly placed and firmly attached to the tooth.
