In many cases of dental decay, tooth fracture, or even in
instances where an individual has "short" teeth,
a crown lengthening procedure will allow us to properly construct
an esthetic and functional crown, bridge, or restoration.
Crown lengthening is a simple surgical procedure which adjusts
the position of the gum around the affected tooth, thereby
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
A purely esthetic crown lengthening procedure to correct
a "gummy" smile is often referred to as Gum Contouring.
