Our patients feel comfortable visiting Cascade Dental for many different services, including this restorative and cosmetic procedure. To see Dr. Joshua Rice at a time most convenient for you, we invite you to call 541-779-6401. Our dentist will provide one-on-one service during your visit for crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening is a gum treatment that has both functional and aesthetic purposes. We may recommend crown lengthening if your appearance is affected by what is sometimes called a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile is one in which the teeth appear abnormally short because of excessive gum tissue. The gum tissue may appear too bulky or look like it comes down over the teeth too far. In most cases, a gummy smile is the result of excessive gum tissue covering teeth that are a normal length and shape. To correct this problem and give you a smile you can show off with pride, our dentist may suggest crown lengthening. During this treatment, we will simply remove a small amount of the gum tissue, revealing more of the tooth structure and giving your smile a more aesthetic appearance. This usually requires just one visit to our office.

We may also recommend crown lengthening to make a restorative or cosmetic dental treatment possible. If the tooth is broken below or very close to the gum line or if insufficient tooth structure is left for a restoration, our dentist may use crown lengthening to expose more of the tooth so a restoration like a crown or bridge can be placed.

To learn more about the uses and benefits of crown lengthening, we welcome you to contact our office today.
