February 1, 2024
A Multidisciplinary Approach
Dr. Melissa Spaulding uses a comprehensive approach with a team of specialists to tackle "gummy smiles" with Esthetic Crown Lengthening.
By integrating the expertise of a board-certified periodontist, Spaulding Dental Co. focuses on the foundational health of the tissues and bones that support your dental structure, ensuring both aesthetic and functional benefits.
Why Crown Lengthening and What is a "Gummy Smile"?
A "gummy smile" is a common concern, affecting about ten percent of the population, characterized by an excessive display of gum tissue. The crown lengthening procedure, possibly combined with the application of veneers or crowns, aims to enhance the tooth-to-gum ratio, promoting a balanced and appealing smile.
Our team collaborates with a master lab to produce crowns and veneers with exceptional realism.
Dr. Spaulding assesses each case for factors like tooth length, the need for additional restorations, and gum health to determine the outcome of crown or veneer placement. Our aim is to achieve a natural-looking, harmonious smile tailored to each patient's individuality.
