Crown Lengthening

At Dental Artistry, we provide a crown-lengthening procedure to help our patients achieve the beautiful smile they deserve. Crown lengthening is a routine dental procedure that involves reshaping gum tissue and bone to expose more of your underlying teeth. It can be used for cosmetic purposes or as part of another dental process, such as placing a bridge or crown on the tooth surface. This procedure is often performed in combination with other oral surgeries and treatments.

Facts About Crown Lengthening 

  • The entire crown lengthening process typically takes one visit to your dentist's office; however, it may require multiple visits depending on how much work needs to be done.
  • This procedure can also improve periodontal health by eliminating deep pockets where bacteria can hide and cause infections within the gums and surrounding tissues of the mouth.
  • Crown lengthening does not affect root surfaces, so you should expect minimal discomfort during recovery from this surgery.

Why Choose Laser Whitening?

  • To improve overall appearance - A longer-looking tooth gives an improved balance between lips and teeth when smiling or laughing, creating an even more aesthetically pleasing look than before.
  • To obtain proper restorations – Having exposed enough tooth structure for appropriate restorative procedures like bridges or crowns will ensure long-lasting success for any restoration placed in your mouth!

Process Of Crown Lengthening

The first step is to numb up local anesthesia around the affected area where the tissue will need to be removed–this helps reduce discomfort during treatment while protecting healthy tissue nearby from unnecessary damage during surgery.

After numbing has taken effect, our team at Dental Artistry will begin removing excess gum tissue using special tools designed specifically for this purpose.

Once there is enough exposure of healthy dentin (the layer underneath the enamel), impressions are taken, allowing us to create permanent restorations like bridges/crowns that fit perfectly into place once surgically completed.

Preventive Care Tips After Crown Lengthening

After the procedure, taking good care of your teeth and gums is crucial to prevent any complications. Here are some tips to help you keep your mouth healthy after crown lengthening:

-Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Be sure to brush gently around the gum line.

-Floss daily to remove plaque and food debris from between your teeth.

-Use an antibacterial mouthwash daily to help reduce bacteria in your mouth.

-See your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.

Following these simple preventive care tips can help ensure a successful outcome after crown lengthening.

I just recently received treatment for a broken tooth, and I got to say that I have found a dentist for life. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They treat you like family and quite frankly I got to say that I was terrified of going to the dentist always and now I think that I’m very comfortable knowing that I’m in good hands. I would recommend dental artistry to anybody that is looking for a very professional and family environment. Awesome!

Not a dentist appointment fan, but here they made sure I felt at ease and comfortable. I had the most comprehensive new-patient exam and left knowing exactly what my options are. 100% recommended! Friendly, client-oriented, professional and knowledgeable staff. They know how to take care of patients who struggle with dental visits.

To say I was impressed by the extremely thoughtful and professional service is an understatement. I have been to various dentist throughout my life and the women at Dental Artistry surpassed my expectations. If you are looking for a new dentist and you are not a fan of going to one in the first place, look no further. You will feel like you are at home and you will feel that you are cared for--because you are! They even have Netflix to watch on noise-cancelling headphones while you are getting your treatment (in case you don't like the sound of the tools on your teeth).

My experience with Dental Artistry has been lovely. All the women that work there are kind, friendly, and professional. After years of avoiding the dentist, I needed to have significant work done. The treatment has been painless and quick.

You know how you can sometimes be skeptical when you see an overwhelming number of positive reviews on a company's website? Especially when some comments seem too enthusiastic to be true? Well, those are the kind of reviews I was reading on the Dental Artistry site so I decided to drive to their office in Irving to check them out. I was so impressed I signed up for an appointment that very day. Since then I've had some procedures done and am working with them on a plan for my long-term dental care.
