Crown Lengthening

Jun 9, 2011   //   by editor   //    //  No Comments

Crown lengthening is a dental surgery to expose more of the tooth surface by reshaping the gum tissue.

There are several reasons your dentist may recommend crown lengthening. It may be performed to prepare for restoration of teeth that are broken or damaged below the gumline. If you have a crown that extends near the gumline, crown lengthening may be performed to increase the space between the crown and the gum tissue to prevent the crown from damaging the tissue. It is also performed for cosmetic reasons, to achieve a more balanced, appealing look if a patient’s smile is ‘gummy’.
