Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening may be recommended to make a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure possible. If a tooth is decayed, broken below the gum line, or has insufficient tooth structure for a required restoration, a crown lengthening procedure will adjust the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored properly.

Crown lengthening is also used to treat a “gummy smile.”  During the procedure the excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth or to several teeth to expose a natural, beautiful smile.
