Functional Crown Lengthening

Crown Lengthening is a surgical procedure that recontours the gum tissue and often the underlying bone surrounding one or more teeth so that an adequate amount of healthy tooth is exposed. Crown lengthening is often used as part of a treatment plan for a tooth that is to be fitted with a crown. This procedure provides the necessary space between the supporting bone and crown, preventing the new crown from damaging gum tissues and bone.

What are the benefits of Crown Lengthening?

Functional crown lengthening is an important part of an integrated effort to optimize your health, appearance, comfort and function.

Also, crown lengthening can be recommended in order to make a restorative procedure possible. If a tooth is badly worn, decayed or fractured below the gum, the tissue can be gently removed. Sometimes bone is also carefully removed if necessary. This allows better access to more of the tooth so it can be restored.
