Crown lengthening is actually a gum or bone reducing procedure. It is not a matter of making the crown longer, but allowing more room for the crown below the initial gum line.
Our team of periodontal experts can effectively remove gum or bone tissue to make room for a new dental crown. This is needed when a tooth is broken too low to properly fit a crown above the existing gum line or a tooth has lost too much material to decay. It can also be used for cosmetic enhancement of a “gummy smile.”
