Meet our patient FD. He presents with clinically healthy teeth and no disease, however, does not like the “spacing of his teeth and difference in size of the teeth”. FD, as part of a comprehensive multi-specialty approach, was referred to Dr. Anderson to make the teeth more proportional to allow for the general dentist to have the proper foundation for esthetic crown work. Dr. Anderson diagnosed FD with “altered passive eruption” where the gum and bone did not properly contract after tooth eruption resulting in short teeth and uneven gingival architecture or “gum line”. Dr. Anderson completed the crown lengthening procedure in an hour allowing FD to return to work the same day.
Please see above for before (left) and after crown lengthening with Dr. Anderson and final crowns with his general dentist (right).
