Although your teeth appear short, they may actually be the proper length. The teeth may be covered with too much gum tissue. We can correct this by performing the periodontal plastic surgery procedure, esthetic crown lengthening or elongation. During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one or several teeth to even your gum line. Cosmetic dentistry by your general dentist may also be recommended to complete your beautiful smile.
