The experienced dental team at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach is skilled at crown lengthening to enhance the look and health of your teeth. Crown lengthening may seem like an odd name to some because it sounds like it entails adding length to the tooth. A more precise term is crown exposure because some of the gum tissue is removed to show more of the enamel. You might want crown lengthening for aesthetic reasons if you'd like to improve a "gummy" smile. Crown lengthening can also be done if not enough of your crown is visible to hold a filling, crown, or another restoration.

"Without a doubt the absolute best experience possible. I was referred by a friend, thank God I was. From the very 1st phone call, Asly was tremendous, got my son in right away. My son for various reasons had rotted teeth. After spending a fortune on bridges, extractions, etc.. no other dentist leveled with me that he Had week teeth that would continue to get worse. He was in such severe pain for so long. Infections, absesses. Rot. I decided the most economical and permanent solution that I could afford was total extraction and dentures. I took him for quotes, typical xray,Nonpersonal attention, just another mouth.Took him to Seda $4000 less. And the caring office manager, Fernanda worked with me for over an hour, applying for financing. She finally set me up with a payment plan orI would have been unable to help my son.After explaining my situation they didn't even charge for his consultation. His dentist Dr. Hanna Butenko was beyond fantastic. All other quotes were pull all teeth at once. Stick In the permanent denture, with putty, then 6 months later come back to see how his jaw adjusted and re-putty, and all money immediately. Wow, Dr. Hanna, saw the horrible mess in my sons mouth. Set up 3 separate appts. One week apart, she saidIt would be way too painful to do all at onceAnd because of the extent of damage some Would be very difficult extractions. And may I say what a knowledgable caring lady. Well three weeks later, I'm sitting at lunch,Final teeth coming out as I write this. And he will be leaving today with his tempatoryDentures, he would not go out because of his teeth. Cant wait to see him really smile again.Three months from now he goes back, they see how his jaws have adjusted AND make him his permanent set! The reason this is so long and detailed is because, I know due to todays culture and poor choices, many young men have rotted hurting teeth, and think there's no answer. Seda also offers all the other options, butDont give up, our choice worked for us, and was affordable. Fernanda & Asly are like family, make my 29 year old son & I feel welcome and special. They know us by name and they should be proud of there courteous. Fun yet professionall manner. Lastly, I cannot Say enough about Dr. Butenko. She comes out of the back to personally see me each visitNot to mention, you will never see 3 more Pretty, really caring and a joy to see each timeYoung wmen.They treat you like family!!!And I havent even met Dr. Hill yet, who my friend said was exceptional. Ther is no other place I will ever go. My other son is next!!!They get 5 out of 5. Not a fair scale, really10 out of 5 stars."- G.K. / Google / Jun 20, 2019
If you are considering crown lengthening, you should be in good overall health, particularly with regard to the gums. Problems, such as gum (periodontal) disease, might have to be addressed before crown lengthening can be done. Most frequently, crown lengthening is done for aesthetic reasons to fix a "gummy" smile. In such circumstances, excessive gum tissue could be eliminated to balance the proportion of tooth to gums and provide you with a raised, even gumline. In some cases, crown lengthening may also be required to complete a dental restoration, such as a bridge, crown, or filling.
What To Expect
To begin the procedure, local anesthesia is applied to the regions that will be treated to minimize your discomfort. You can talk about other sedation options with our team during your initial consultation to help you remain comfortable and calm throughout the process. Once you are ready, the gum tissue is removed in small portions to slowly show more of your enamel. Next, your gumline will be sculpted for a lifted and even look. Once we have finished the process, we will close the incisions and then rinse your mouth.
Following your treatment, your gums could be sore and inflamed. Over-the-counter pain relievers and cold compresses can be utilized to lessen your discomfort, but our team may write a prescription for antibiotics and/or pain medication. It can be good to adhere to a soft food or liquid diet for many days while your mouth heals. You should keep your mouth clean at home with soft brushing and mouthwash, but avoid dental floss. In some cases, you might need to make another appointment at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach to track your recovery. Our team will also always assess your gums at your yearly dental examination.
The cost for crown lengthening will differ based on what it is being done. Dental insurance companies might cover a part of the expense in certain scenarios, but they might not. In any case, our financial staff will get in touch with your insurer to ascertain what your personal expenses will be prior to discussing your choices for payment. If you do not have insurance, our dental team can help estimate your expenses during your consultation and also provide you with more info on low-interest financing, which could help to make your treatment easier to afford.
