Crown Lengthening

 

Crown lengthening is a procedure that is done to expose more of a tooth. Many people feel their smile is too "gummy" and their teeth are short.

 

 
How It's Done

The excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth to even-up a gum line, or to several teeth to expose a broader smile.

 
Why It's Done
  • To expose a broader smile, as mentioned above
  • To make a restorative procedure possible
  • To make a cosmetic procedure possible
 

If a tooth is decayed or broken below the gum line, it may be necessary to do crown lengthening prior to another procedure, like dental crowns or bridges.
