Here at Dr. Warren Baine’s office, our Jericho crown lengthening services are among our most popular and prominent today. Crown lengthening is a procedure that can be used to treat a number of common dental issues. Crown lengthening is a procedure in which Dr. Baine cuts back and removes tissue around your gumline that is not necessary, which in turn lengthens the appearance of your teeth. This is mainly a cosmetic procedure, which aims to please patients who are uncomfortable with their “gummy” smiles. However, our Jericho crown lengthening is also commonly used as part of a periodontal disease treatment plan. To find out if you are a good candidate for our Jericho crown lengthening, the first step is to schedule an appointment here at Dr. Baine’s office. First, we will consult with you about your smile goals and the changes you would like to see in your smile. If you are visiting us simply because you are looking to improve the aesthetics of your smile, and your gums, teeth, and underlying bone are healthy, it is highly likely that you are an excellent candidate for Jericho crown lengthening and that we can provide you with the procedure without any issue. If you are a patient with periodontal disease, the requirements might get slightly more in-depth. If your periodontal disease has developed to the point where the underlying bone in your jaw has been depleted, this may decrease the likelihood that we can proceed with Jericho crown lengthening for you. These are all decisions made on an individual basis with each patient, which we base on the patient’s overall health and well being and what is best for that patient at the time of their visit.
