Crown Lengthening

The "crown" of a tooth is that part that is above the gums. Sometimes more of the tooth below the gums must be exposed to fill a cavity near the gumline or place a new crown on a broken tooth. "Crown lengthening" provides more tooth structure for this to be done. This helps to ensure that the general dental procedure is successful and prevents gum irritation.

Crown Lengthening for Restoration

Procedure: Your periodontist administers a local anesthetic and gently recontours excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of your natural tooth.
