Say “Goodbye” with Crown Lengthening
Strong, healthy teeth are the best foundation for any smile, but they’re not the only contributing factor to a beautiful one. Your gum tissue plays a big role, too. Ideally, gums should be proportional to your teeth as well as healthy. When you have too much gum tissue—a condition called a “gummy smile”—your teeth can be in great condition, but not provide the esthetics you want. You may be worried that your teeth appear too short or too much gum tissue shows when you smile. If you’re dissatisfied with how your smile looks, we have a solution. Dr. Saleh Elahwal and Dr. Germain Jean-Charles can eliminate an unattractive gummy smile with crown lengthening. This simple yet effective cosmetic dentistry treatment, completed right at our Brooklyn, NY office, might be just what you need to feel confident in your smile once again. Best of all, it’s virtually painless with our laser technology!
