Lenox Hill crown lengthening
Are your teeth too short? Well, they aren't really. They just look that way, and the reason is that your gums protrude too far over your teeth. This is sometimes referred to as a “gummy smile.” At the office of Mitchell Bloom, our Lenox Hill crown lengthening
is a procedure that is done with expert precision and gentle care to correct that problem and give you a smile that you'll be proud to show off.
In addition to wanting your smile to look better, you may also benefit from our Lenox Hill crown lengthening when your gums are hindering access to your teeth for a filling or crown to be placed, or when a tooth is broken below the gum line. The procedure is both safe and effective, and has an impressive rate of success. The way it works is that your excess gum tissue is reshaped. This allows the proper amount of your tooth to be visible, and for the vast majority of people, that means a more pleasing smile; one that you will not feel self-conscious about as you may right now. Our Lenox Hill crown lengthening will be done under sufficient local anesthesia to ensure that you enjoy a comfortable experience. As with any type of oral surgery, you will be given detailed instructions to take home with you, but essentially you should be prepared to take over-the-counter pain relief medication when the anesthesia wears off to deal with any discomfort. Eat only soft foods, such as pudding, gelatin, and broth, for an initial period after surgery. In a week to ten days, you will have your stitches removed and that will accelerate the healing process.
