Crown Lengthening

General dentists recommend this procedure for restorative or cosmetic reasons. A tooth may be decayed below the gum line or have insufficient tooth structure for a restoration, such as a crown or bridge. The crown lengthening procedure adjusts the gum and bone levels to expose more tooth structure so it can be restored. On top of that, this procedure can correct the appearance of your gum tissue and even your gum line to expose more natural teeth and a more acceptable smile.

Dental Crown Installation Process

Functional Crown Lengthening

There are times when a tooth is damaged or decayed below the gum line. If this happens, crown lengthening allows the tooth to be restored by exposing a more workable surface to accomplish the goal. When crown lengthening is done to facilitate repairing or restoring a tooth or teeth, it is done for function. This method creates the appropriate gap between the supporting bone and the crown while preparing or fitting a cap or crown, preventing the new crown from harming gum tissues and bone.
