Will my gums look the same as the after photo after they have healed? Crown lengthening (Photo)

Its best to evaluate the procedure after minimum of two weeks but most likely after 4-6 weeks once the complete healing has taken place.
It has only been three days and your gums will look better at 7 days then even better at 2 weeks post-op. The result of your complete gum lift really looks great. Just look at the length and proper teeth proportion achieved by your dentist. Your gums will be pink and tighter, and no sutures will be there in a few more days.
