Crown Lengthening - Gingivectomy: What Is It and How Is It Done? Istanbul Turkey

Modern aesthetic dentistry goes beyond just having healthy teeth, offering treatments that aim for a more attractive and beautiful smile. At DentMax Oral and Dental Health Clinic Istanbul Turkey, our expert team is here to help you achieve an aesthetically pleasing smile through crown lengthening (gingivectomy).

What Is Crown Lengthening (Gingivectomy)? Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that involves removing a portion of the gum tissue to expose more of the tooth. This procedure is typically used to correct a "gummy smile" where too much gum tissue is visible. Gingivectomy is also used to treat gum diseases.

Methods of Crown Lengthening at DentMax Istanbul Turkey

Laser Crown Lengthening

  • Method: Laser is used to cut and shape the gum tissue.
  • Advantage: Minimal bleeding, faster healing time.
  • Use Case: Preferred for aesthetic purposes and minor gum reshaping.

Traditional Surgery

  • Method: Surgical scalpel is used to cut and shape the gum tissue.
  • Advantage: Allows for more extensive and detailed reshaping of the gum tissue.
  • Use Case: Used for more extensive gum reshaping needs.

Electrocautery

  • Method: Electric current is used to cut and shape the gum tissue.
  • Advantage: Good bleeding control, moderate healing time.
  • Use Case: Suitable for moderate gum reshaping procedures.

Digital Gingival Guide with Crown Lengthening

  • Method: Digital technologies are used to precisely shape the gum tissue. This method involves planning and executing the procedure using a digital gingival guide.
  • Advantage: Provides more precise and controlled reshaping, optimizing aesthetic outcomes.
  • Use Case: Especially preferred in cases with high aesthetic demands.

What Is a Digital Gingival Guide?

A digital gingival guide is a modern technology used in gum reshaping procedures. This guide is created using digital scans of the teeth and gums, allowing the dentist to perform the procedure with greater precision and control. With the digital guide, the gum tissue is shaped with millimetric accuracy to achieve the desired aesthetic results.

How Is the Crown Lengthening Procedure Performed at DentMax?

  1. Examination and Planning: The dentist evaluates the condition of the gums and teeth, and plans the procedure.
  2. Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered to numb the area before the procedure.
  3. Gum Reshaping: The gum tissue is cut and shaped using the chosen method.
  4. Sutures and Control: Sutures are placed if necessary, and the gum tissue is checked post-procedure.
  5. Healing Process: The healing of the gums is monitored, and necessary care instructions are provided.

Post-Treatment Care for Crown Lengthening

  • Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss your teeth regularly.
  • Medication Use: Take prescribed antibiotics and pain relievers as directed by your dentist.
  • Soft Diet: Consume soft and lukewarm foods for the first few days, avoiding hard and hot foods.
  • Follow-Up Appointments: Visit your dentist regularly to monitor the healing process.

Benefits of Crown Lengthening

  • Aesthetic Improvement: Corrects excessive gum visibility for a more aesthetic smile.
  • Better Oral Health: Exposes more of the tooth surface, making cleaning and maintenance easier.
  • Increased Confidence: A more attractive smile boosts self-confidence.
  • Treatment of Gum Diseases: Effective in treating gum diseases.
  • Healthy Gums: Ensures the gum tissue is healthy and properly shaped.
