I've heard that crown lengthening will help the appearance of my 'gummy' smile. Will it hurt?
Crown lengthening is a procedure often associated with a fair amount of pain and discomfort, and that's why our practitioners do their best to administer lengthening treatments that not only minimize pain but also reduce long-term irritation and discomfort that allow you a much faster return to your normal routine. We apply a local anesthetic during the procedure and prescribe the pain medication most appropriate to your situation.
We will work to determine your specific needs so that we may provide the dental care most appropriate to your unique tolerance for pain. Dr. Swarna and her staff want to make you as comfortable as possible and will use the wealth of knowledge and experience at their disposal to address any concerns you might have regarding your crown lengthening procedure.
