If you feel you show an excessive amount of gum tissue when you show a full smile (gummy smile), you may benefit from treatment at Stoner Periodontic Specialists. Our smile is perhaps one of the most important aspects of our appearance. If you are happy with your smile, it is easier to display confidence or express excitement. While if you’re unhappy with your smile, it can drain your self-confidence altogether and make social gatherings tough to involve in.
When we think about an impressive smile, typically the teeth-shape, color, alignment, health and more is what comes to mind. While our gums, however, are an incredibly important part of our smile as well. If you unintendedly show too much gum when you smile, it can make your face appear longer or make your teeth seem smaller. The proportions of your smile could be adjusted to allow a more uniform look.

Crown Lengthening & Shortening
Your dentist may refer you to visit Stoner Periodontic Specialists for a crown lengthening procedure for a various amount of reasons. Usually, this procedure is needed if there is an excess amount of gum tissue present and the patient is interested in correcting this for aesthetic reasons.
If the patient has a tooth that is decayed or broken below the gum line, it may benefit from gum recession to allow more space for treatment options. If a tooth has an insufficient tooth structure for a restoration or crown, this procedure will allow more space for a fabricated tooth restoration piece to be cemented onto the tooth.
