Extension of dental crowns in patients with a gummy smile
It’s a periodontal plastic surgery which entails a repositioning of the gums. It is for patients with a gummy smile (big exposition of gums when smiling), not very pleasant.
What does the operation entail?
The gums are reduced and when smiling the gums are less exposed. The tooth will be longer and more proportioned. All gum asymmetries will be corrected.
