Crown Lengthening in San Ramon, CA

Dr. Rupam Khanna is skilled at crown lengthening to improve the appearance and health of your teeth. Crown lengthening can come off as an odd name to some since it sounds like it entails adding material to the tooth. A more precise term is crown exposure because some of the gum tissue is cut away to show more of the tooth. You might want crown lengthening for cosmetic reasons if you'd like to improve a "gummy" smile. It might also be needed if not enough of your tooth is visible to support a crown, filling, or another restoration. If you would like more information, please schedule an appointment at San Ramon Family Dental in San Ramon, CA.

To begin the procedure, a numbing agent is used on the needed areas to minimize your discomfort. You may discuss other sedation methods with Dr. Khanna at your consultation to help you stay comfortable and calm throughout the process. After your mouth is ready, your gum tissue will be cut away to gradually reveal more of your teeth, and then the gumline will be shaped for an even look. As soon as Dr. Khanna completes the crown lengthening procedure, she will close the gums and clean your mouth.

Crown lengthening is a dental treatment that provides several advantages for patients in San Ramon, CA, such as:

  • Improving the appearance of teeth by revealing additional tooth structure
  • Giving better access for restorative treatments, including dental crowns or bridges
  • Enhancing the durability of dental restorations by building a firm foundation
  • Providing a more uniform gumline for a better aesthetic
  • Advancing overall dental hygiene by permitting easier maintenance of teeth and gums
  • Addressing dental caries or fractures that happen underneath the gumline
  • Solving problems of gummy smiles by diminishing extra gum tissue
  • Improving self-confidence and self-esteem via more appealing teeth

Everyone at San Ramon Family Dental is friendly and helpful. They contacted me immediately after I left an after-hours message about my fractured tooth. My husband and I have been going there for over five years and are extremely satisfied with the care.

My two boys and I have been with San Ramon Family Dental for 17 years now. The reason we’ve stayed with Dr. Khanna all these years is because of her honest practice and true nature. Her whole team is beautiful. Her right hand Kaela is the most helpful person you’ll find . I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Khanna at any chance I get.
