Gum reduction with a crown lengthening procedure can create a more pleasant looking smile, enhancing facial beauty. We remove excess tissue that may be interfering with chewing and normal dental function.

Soft Tissue Plastic Surgery

Soft tissue procedures include:

  • Reshaping or removing gum tissue (Gingivectomy). These procedures are done for periodontal or esthetic reasons or in order to gain access to decay. Soft tissue reshaping may be done to gain proper shapes and forms for teeth and or restorations.
  • Clipping muscle attachments (Frenectomy) This procedure may be used to remove an attachment that is interfering with normal speech or causing excessive soft tissue loss around teeth. This procedure is also done in conjunction with orthodontics to close excessive space between teeth.
  • Removing soft tissue growths (Fibroma removals, Hemangioma removals.) This procedure is used to remove excess tissue or growths that may be an esthetic or functional problem.
  • Gently removing swollen tissues (Gingivoplasty). This procedure is used to remove excess tissue caused by systemic disease, medication, or poor oral hygiene.

Dr. Garelick will provide you with more information and help you decide if oral crown lengthening is the most appropriate method to achieve your goals.
