Because the human eye is drawn to symmetry, any lack of balance may call attention to imperfections; so regardless of how white and straight your teeth may be, if they are covered with gum tissue, they will look short and worn down. When more pink is showing than white, teeth have a stubby appearance.
To help give the appearance of longer teeth, your dentist can perform crown lengthening, using a laser or scalpel to redefine your gum line so more tooth is exposed. The single-visit procedure is performed with local anesthesia, taking about an hour per arch, with minimal recovery time.
