Crown Lengthening


Cavities can decay a tooth to the point where restoration is virtually impossible without a procedure called crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening is a routine surgical procedure, which remodels the contour of the gum line. The procedure does not actually lengthen the crown, but rather lowers the gum line. When there is not enough tooth structure to affix a crown, crown lengthening will help expose more tooth sturcture so the dentist will have more surface area to prepare the tooth for a crown.
