When it comes to contemporary dental treatment, Boca Perio Implants understands the importance of optimal visual beauty that results in true oral health as well as comfort and functionality. Our eagerly sought after Aesthetic Tooth Lengthening procedure is no exception.

Tooth Lengthening is a technique whereby gum tissue and bone are carefully and strategically removed to expose more of your natural, brilliant teeth.

Here at Boca Perio Implants we work with the client to develop a comprehensive, personalized plan of treatment. We give the utmost attention to detail, taking into account facial symmetry, face height, lip anatomy, profile and smile line, leaving you with a stunning, head turning cosmetic effect.

The dentists at Boca Perio Implants have had extensive training and experience in Aesthetic Tooth Lengthening. We also utilize the industry’s highest quality materials and standards of care. This means you can relax with the knowledge that you are in safe hands!

About the Procedure

About the Procedure

Tooth lengthening is a versatile and common procedure that has many uses and benefits. Such as:

Restoration of Damaged Teeth

Periodontal disease1 can cause severe and unsightly damage to teeth, as can trauma and decay. Where teeth have been broken beneath the gum line, crown lengthening can be carried out to prepare the area for a new restoration to correct the damaged teeth and bring your smile back to life.

Cosmetic Uses

Extra gum tissue2 can make teeth look unnaturally short. Removing excess gum tissue can restore the balanced, healthy look that you desire.

Dental Crowns

Crown lengthening3 serves to provide more space between the supporting jawbone and dental crown. This prevents the new crown from damaging gum tissues and bone once it is in place. Unlike many cosmetic dental treatments, crown lengthening only needs to be done once, with no requirement for touch-ups down the road.
