What is Crown Lengthening?

In many cases of dental decay, tooth fracture, or even where an individual has “short” teeth, a crown lengthening procedure will allow us to properly construct an esthetic and functional crown, bridge, or restoration. Teeth require some amount of height for a crown or bridge to be placed and held in position. The shorter tooth may not be able to hold the crown adequately and may tend to slip during chewing or biting movements. Taking enough length from the root portion of the tooth helps to build the fixed crown successfully. This makes the fixed crown more visually appealing and functionally superior.  

Procedure

Crown lengthening is a simple surgical procedure in which the dentist adjusts the position of the gum around the affected tooth, providing a more solid tooth on which to anchor the restoration of choice. A functional crown lengthening will help you regain a beautiful smile and allow you to eat and speak with comfort and confidence.
