If you are unhappy with excessive gum tissue, our periodontists may recommend crown lengthening, which involves decreasing the gum line to ultimately reveal more of the tooth structure. Our periodontists often recommend esthetic crown lengthening for those who feel that their smile is too “gummy,” whereas functional crown lengthening is often necessary for those who are receiving a restoration, such as a dental bridge or crown. At Mountain Perio, Dr. Shefter and Dr. Fertik can help you know if you can benefit from esthetic or functional crown lengthening in Hendersonville, North Carolina, or Asheville or Brevard. To learn more, we welcome you to call our office today at (828) 693-7533.
