Dentist in Fort Pierce, FL!

Apex Dentistry


At Apex Dentistry, we recognize the importance of a balanced and harmonious smile. Crown lengthening is a specialized dental procedure we offer, aimed at improving the aesthetics and functionality of your teeth. Led by Dr. Mojgan Salehi, our team is dedicated to providing expert crown lengthening services with precision, skill, and compassion.

Understanding Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure designed to expose more of the tooth’s structure by removing excess gum tissue and, in some cases, bone. This allows for better access to the tooth’s surface, enabling the placement of restorations such as dental crowns or veneers. Crown lengthening may also be performed to address a gummy smile or to improve the health and appearance of teeth affected by decay or fractures below the gum line.

Indications for Crown Lengthening

Gummy Smile: Excessive gum tissue can make teeth appear short or disproportionate, leading to a gummy smile. Crown lengthening can help create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile by exposing more of the tooth’s surface.

Restorative Needs: In cases where a tooth is fractured, decayed, or too short to support a restoration such as a crown or veneer, crown lengthening may be necessary to provide adequate tooth structure for the restoration to be successful.

Periodontal Health: Crown lengthening can also be performed to improve access for cleaning and treating teeth affected by periodontal disease, reducing the risk of further damage and promoting gum health.

During the crown lengthening procedure at Apex Dentistry, you can expect:

Dr. Mojgan Salehi will evaluate your oral health, discuss your concerns and treatment goals, and determine if crown lengthening is the right option for you.

Using advanced techniques and instruments, Dr. Salehi will carefully remove excess gum tissue and, if necessary, reshape the underlying bone to expose more of the tooth’s surface.

A personalized treatment plan will be developed based on your specific needs and preferences, outlining the areas of excess gum tissue or bone to be removed and the desired outcome of the procedure.

After the procedure, our team will provide detailed instructions for post-operative care, including pain management, swelling reduction, and proper oral hygiene practices to promote healing.
