Our highly experienced periodontists, Ke Shang, DMD, FRCDC, Roxanne Lowenguth, DDS, MS, and James Infantino, DDS, FADI, offer a breakthrough service known as crown lengthening. Ideal for fixing a gummy smile, this Cosmetic Gum Treatment provides a harmonious balance between your teeth and gums by removing excess gum tissue. Whether you're in Rochester or nearby areas like Brighton, Henrietta, Pittsford, and more, our state-of-the-art treatment can redefine your smile and boost your self-esteem.

What are the Benefits of Crown Lengthening?

Crown lengthening offers both functional and aesthetic advantages. By unveiling more of your tooth's surface, the procedure makes way for essential dental restorations like crowns and bridges. But the star of the show is its cosmetic appeal—fixing a gummy smile and granting you a broader, more alluring smile that lights up a room.

How Does Crown Lengthening Differ from Other Cosmetic Gum Treatments?

While there are various ways to enhance gum aesthetics, crown lengthening stands out for its permanent results. The process involves skillful reshaping and removal of excess gum tissue and, in some cases, bone modification. This creates a stable foundation for future dental restorations while delivering immediate cosmetic improvements.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Crown Lengthening?

Anyone unhappy with the appearance of their gums or those needing to pave the way for other dental treatments like crowns or veneers may find crown lengthening a suitable option. Our dedicated team in Rochester will conduct a thorough examination to assess your specific needs, ensuring that the procedure is right for you, regardless of age.

What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

At ROC Perio & Implants, we prioritize your comfort. The treatment area will be numbed before we proceed with the gum tissue removal. Our expert periodontists utilize the latest technologies and techniques to shape the gums, providing a natural and aesthetically pleasing look. Post-operative care instructions will be provided, guiding you through the healing process.

How Long is the Recovery Period?

Typically, the gums will heal naturally over a few weeks. Patients are usually able to return to their normal activities within a day or two following the treatment, making it a minimally invasive solution with maximal results.
