Laser Crown Lengthening Princeton, NJ
Dental Services Princeton NJ

Crown lengthening is a unique treatment that our Princeton dentist uses for a variety or reasons, ranging from smile design to dental rehabilitation. And thanks to lasers, is gentler and easier than ever.

The laser crown lengthening process involves reshaping or “contouring” your gingiva (gum tissues) around your tooth so that it exposes more of the “crown” that’s normally above your gums.

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening

Smile Design treatments like cosmetic crown lengthening help your tooth look larger. If teeth appear short or you have a “gummy smile”, reducing the height of your gingiva can help your teeth look more appealing. The treatment can be completed in one day with practically no post-operative discomfort.

Restorative Crown Lengthening

Let’s say you have a tooth that needs to be restored with a dental crown (cap,) but it’s too worn down or short. By exposing some of the root, the anatomical crown can be enlarged so that there’s room to fit a restorative crown on top of it. Otherwise, the tooth would probably have to be extracted.

Therapeutic Crown Lengthening

Gum disease is an infection that destroys the attachment between your gum tissues and tooth roots, creating deep pockets under the gingiva. Deeper pockets are more challenging to clean. Crown lengthening reduces pocket depth, making home care and maintenance easier.

How Lasers Can Help

Crown lengthening with a dental laser provides gentle, minimally-invasive treatment options that are accurate and predictable. As a result, there’s less irritation, swelling, and bleeding. Treating your gums with a laser is one of the best ways to keep your gums beautiful and healthy.

Ms P.

My husband has been going to Dr Ma and this practice for many years and swears by them so I thought I would try it out. Very pleasant and professional with a great location and good availability, they respond to queries in a timely way and provide reminders for appointments via text which is great since some practices appear to be in the dark ages on some of the practical stuff. Everyone seems to try to ensure you have a pleasant visit (in spite of being to the dentist!) so kudos to the whole operation. Also, a lot of care has been taken to go above and beyond the requirements of hygiene during this pandemic including state-of-the-art air filtration systems.

Jay J.

Starting from reception to the assistant to the doctors they are so amazing. I have major dental anxiety and they were above and beyond sweet and nice to me. I have come back after a root canal and I can go for a run I feel that good and comfortable with them. They rock! They are awesome- I highly recommend this place
