Crown Lengthening

A Beautiful Practice For All Your Dental Needs

Sometimes, when there’s decay below the gumline, dentists might need to remove a bit of bone and gum tissue before putting a new crown on your tooth.  

They do this for two reasons:  

  • To fix broken or really decayed teeth by adjusting the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored.  
  • To make your smile look better if you have too much gum covering your teeth where excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth 

It’s a little adjustment to show more of your tooth and make it look and work better.
