Crown Lengthening


Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a periodontal procedure that can be performed for restorative or cosmetic purposes. If you’ve asked your dentist on how to improve a “gummy” smile, crown lengthening may be the solution. Your teeth may be the proper length but are covered by too much gum tissue. During crown lengthening, excess gum tissue isCrown Lenghtening removed and the bone is reshaped to expose more of the tooth structure resulting in a broader smile.

In restorative cases, crown lengthening is performed when a tooth needs to be restored and there is not enough naturally exposed tooth structure to support the procedure. In these cases, the tooth may be broken below the gum line or have extensive decay lacking the support a crown or a bridge needs. Only after more of the tooth is exposed, will your periodontist be able to perform a reinforced restoration. In either case, crown lengthening improves both the look and functionality of your teeth, giving you a confident smile that lasts.
