A tooth’s crown extends beyond the gum line. However, your gum line can rest too low and make the teeth look shorter. It can undermine aesthetics and your smile. Toronto Cosmetic Dentist Dr.Johnson can recommend esthetic crown lengthening to even out an uneven gum line. This cosmetic gum contouring procedure can reshape your gums aesthetically and showcase your beautiful teeth. It can improve your appearance and give you a charming smile.
Dentists and periodontists use laser dentistry for crown lengthening to treat periodontal disease. This progressive gum disease can worsen over time, leading to dental decay, oral bleeding, inflammation, and receding gum lines. It also increased the risk of developing other health conditions. With laser gum contouring, your Toronto dentist can treat gum disease and eliminate associated risks.
The cost of crown lengthening for one tooth depends on the extent of the work being done. Laser gum contouring in Toronto can cost you $50-$350 per tooth. If the procedure involves removing excess gum around several teeth, you can pay $1,000 or more.
But does insurance cover crown lengthening cost? Most insurance policies don’t cover cosmetic dental procedures. You’ll have to pay for esthetic crown lengthening out-of-pocket. However, some policies can cover a portion of gum contouring costs if it is medically necessary.

Anesthesia. Unlike traditional surgical crown lengthening, laser gum contouring is quick and in the post-operative discomfort, part can be considered pain-free. So, you won’t need to be asleep for the procedure. However, your dentist will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area being treated before aesthetic crown lengthening surgery.
Contouring. During crown lengthening surgery, your dentist will use a laser to reshape your gums with pinpoint accuracy. The laser is directed only to targeted areas of the gums, guarantying a high degree of precision.
