Esthetic Tooth Exposure,
Crown Lengthening or Gum Lift

The relationship between your teeth and the gum tissue is much like a frame around a picture. If the frame is not proportioned correctly, it will draw your eye away from the artwork and the overall esthetic appeal is sharply diminished. We can now change that “frame” to improve the appearance of Mother Nature’s artwork, your smile. This process is Esthetic Tooth Exposure.

Benefits of Esthetic Tooth Exposure

Esthetic Tooth Exposure recontours and repositions the gum line allowing the natural length and size of the teeth to appear in the smile. You will benefit from:

  • enhanced teeth that no longer look short, square, or like baby teeth
  • a much more attractive smile
  • an improved self image and more confidence
  • a relatively quick healing period with little discomfort
  • visible results immediately

Esthetic Tooth Exposure Before and After

Some people have teeth that look too short or square due to the relationship between their teeth and gums. These patients are often referred to as having a “gummy smile.” Many others have gums that are uneven and distracting compared to the neighboring teeth. Looking closely, it appears that the gum line is creeping over the teeth, making them look worn down or underdeveloped. In reality, the teeth are the proper length but are partially hidden by the gums.

After

In adolescents, the unusual appearance of the gums compared to the teeth can be a result of gum tissue thickening during orthodontic treatment. It is very difficult to brush and floss around the braces so the gums can become irritated and “over-grow” becoming quite unattractive in the process. When the braces are removed, the gum tissue often appears “swollen” and must be contoured back to a normal size and position. Improving the appearance of the smile at this age is a huge confidence builder.
