The Crown Lengthening Procedure

Turning gummy smiles into happy smiles.

Esthetic crown lengthening is a proven dental procedure for a gummy smile or asymmetrical smile. Crown lengthening will make your gums look shorter and your teeth longer.

Functional crown lengthening will allow your dentist to save a severely broken down tooth. Our skilled periodontist…Meet our periodontist, Dr. Sato… meticulously recontours the gum and bone around the tooth. While doing this, our periodontist takes great care to be as conservative as possible. Whether your goal is esthetic crown lengthening for a gummy smile or functional crown lengthening, our outstanding team can provide this service in our Seattle, WA office!

Sometimes a tooth is severely broken down due to decay or trauma. Instead of extracting such a tooth, functional crown lengthening can be performed. This procedure exposes healthy tooth which allows your dentist to place the crown.

I have been a patient of Dr. LeCuyer's for over 25 years. Even after moving to the Eastside, my family and I cannot imagine going anywhere else for our teeth cleanings and everything else. He and Dr. Amato are both very thorough and always professional, as is the entire staff.
