The Smile Gallery East Grinstead

Crown lengthening

At The Smile Gallery, we offer a surgical procedure called crown lengthening, whereby gum tissue is trimmed down and reshaped.

Do you need it?

Crown lengthening is often performed for cosmetic reasons. And this is normally on patients with a ‘gummy smile’.

A ‘gummy smile’ is an abundance of gum tissue that can make teeth appear unusually short. In some cases, the dentist may also need to remove some bone.

If a patient needs a crown but does not have enough visible tooth surface to support it, they may require crown lengthening to expose more of the base of the tooth first.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“I came to this dental practice to have 2 Cerec crowns and am very pleased with my treatment. From my first visit, I have been made to feel welcome by all the very friendly staff. The practice has a very relaxed atmosphere; Rahul and Marie always ensured that I was comfortable and catered for, even sitting in the waiting room while my crowns were being made. I even saw one of my crowns being milled in the machine before it was fitted. Rahul and Marie really make you feel relaxed and at ease; I felt as if I had known them for ages- I don’t remember ever laughing and having a bit of a joke whilst sitting in a dentist’s chair before!!” Sian, East Grinstead

Procedure

A patient may also undergo a procedure to treat a severe case of gum disease. The surgery is often called a gingivectomy and only involves the removal of the diseased gum tissue.

Either way, your dentist will remove the necessary tissue before reshaping the remaining tissue and stitching it back into place.

The treatment can help prolong the life of broken teeth and can save you a lot of money in the long run. With so many successful cases, our team has saved 100s of teeth!!

Dr. Esen and Olivia were extremely gentle on me. I'm a big baby! Dr. Esen numbed my gum and I felt nothing more while she filled the upper tooth. Thank you.

Just want to say a MASSIVE thank you too Dr Rahul and Nicole. I was in yesterday for composite bonding and I’m over the moon with my new teeth. Dr Rahul listened to exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t be happier. Both Nicole and Rahul were so kind and reassuring💕would recommend to anyone ☺️

A colleague of mine recommended this brilliant team 👏 😀 that I can only speak highly of when it comes to their professionalism and dedication. I happen to live quite far BUT that honestly is all worth it. Dr Rahul & Dr Jaime ABSOLUTELY THE BEST 👏 👌 I know it's going to be a long journey for me but having such wonderful team will make the process less stressful. I can't thank them enough for being ever so patient, also the ever so lovely receptists whomno matter how busy they are they always welcome you with such warmth. Huge thanks for making a difference to those of us that in a way left it a bit "too late" going to the dentist.
