Crown lengthenings or gum lifts are one of the more popular cosmetic procedures requested by patients to enhance their smile. This simple procedure is utilized to treat “gummy” smiles or create longer teeth that give people wider and brighter smiles. It can be combined with other dental restorations such as crowns or veneers to really create a beautiful result. The recovery period for this procedure is usually only one day and the results are permanent. The cases shown below represent Dr. Wong’s own work and that of the dentists he works with in Oklahoma.
