Crown Lengthening

This procedure can be done for the correction of a gummy smile, as well as make a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure possible when your tooth is decayed, broken below the gum line, or has insufficient tooth structure for a restoration, such as a crown or bride. Crown lengthening adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored.

During this procedure excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth.
