Please see above for before and immediately after crown lengthening procedures. Note the clear sutures will dissolve over 4-7 days and placed to minimize esthetic issues over the 2 week post-operative period.

Meet our 21 year old patient BM who presented with a chief concern “My teeth don’t match my age, I would like longer teeth”.  BM planned to return to college after his appointment and was curious as to how he would look immediately after surgery. Please see above for before and immediately after crown lengthening surgery. Typically results are shown once healing is complete, however, Dr. Anderson feels that it is important for patients to know what to expect during, right after and months after the procedure.

BM was pleased with the results and “how fast the appointment went”. Please note a few clear sutures called “chromic gut” which were strategically placed to keep the gum at the proper level but in places that are mostly hidden when RJ spoke or laughed. BM will return in 3 months for Dr. Anderson to evaluate the results and give clearance for BM to return to his general dentist.
