Check my Gums

Gummy Smiles

Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure carried out by our Specialist Periodontist, Dr Viren Vithlani, to reduce the amount of gum around the tooth.


It can be carried out because there is a “Gummy Smile” and too much of the gum is being shown or it may be carried out because the teeth are too short and hence to lengthen the tooth.


It is a straightforward procedure carried out under local anaesthetic by our extremely experienced and skilled surgeon.


Your gums may feel a little tender and sore for a few days after but recovery is rapid and the results can be dramatic.
