What is Crown Lengthening?
Everyone’s gums are different. Some patients have gums that cover the front of their teeth. This type of gum line can sometimes appear uneven and cover your smile, which is why crown lengthening is sometimes requested for cosmetic reasons. Yet the most common use for the procedure is functional.
When your dentist requests crown lengthening, it is likely because the tooth has either suffered from severe decay, does not have enough structure for a crown, or suffers from one of many other dental challenges.
Crown lengthening involves shaping both the gum and bone so that more tooth is exposed. Your smile tends to have a more even appearance aesthetically, and it allows the dentist to gain access to parts of the tooth necessary to complete several different types of dental procedures.
