Gum Recontouring Bethesda and Washington, DC
A common complaint that Bethesda and Washington, DC patients have is a “Gummy smile”. While this can make for a youthful appearance, sometimes it makes the teeth appear short and wide leading to a self-conscious smile. Crown lengthening is a procedure that exposes more of your teeth, giving your teeth the right proportions for a confident smile.
Sometimes several teeth need treatment
Sometimes it’s just one tooth that needs evening out to match the adjacent teeth
In another circumstance, a tooth can fracture or get a cavity below the gum line. To assist your dentist in gaining access to the fractured or decayed part of the tooth, Dr. Puterman can reduce the tissue, allowing your dentist to properly fabricate a long-lasting restoration.
Restore your smile with a gum recontouring procedure. For more information on the procedure or to schedule a consultation, contact our office in the Bethesda and Washington, DC area at (301) 652-0939.
