Crown Lengthening

crownCrown lengthening is a procedure with multiple uses.  Crown lengthening can be done to change a patient’s “gummy” smile into a more beautiful smile that shows more tooth than gums.  Crown lengthening is also performed when decay reaches the bone level on a tooth that is to receive a crown or “cap”.  The crown cannot be seated if the finish line of the crown rests on bone.  In these cases, a small amount of bone is removed so that more of the tooth is exposed and a crown can be properly seated onto the tooth.
