Crown Lengthening By Lasers
Crown lengthening by laser is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a dental laser to reshape the gum line and expose more of the tooth’s surface. The procedure is typically performed by a periodontist or a cosmetic dentist and is used to correct issues such as a gummy smile, uneven gum line, or to prepare the tooth for a dental crown.
During the procedure, a dental laser is used to remove excess gum tissue and reshape the gum line to expose more of the tooth’s surface. The laser can selectively target the gum tissue, leaving the surrounding tissue intact and reducing bleeding and discomfort during and after the procedure. The laser also promotes faster healing and a reduced risk of infection.
Crown lengthening by laser offers several advantages over traditional crown lengthening procedures, including a faster recovery time, reduced pain and discomfort, and a more precise and controlled removal of gum tissue. Additionally, the procedure can be performed in a single visit, and patients can often return to normal activities immediately after the procedure.
However, not all cases of crown lengthening can be treated with laser, and it is important to consult with a dental professional to determine if it is a suitable option for your individual case. The procedure may also not be covered by all insurance plans, so it is important to check with your insurance provider before undergoing the procedure.
