Crown Lengthening


It is no secret that dentists are committed to saving teeth. This is why a filling or crown is suggested instead of removing the tooth. 

At times the decay, fracture, or infection extends deep down a root making traditional restoration 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 thereby giving access to healthy solid tooth structure on which to build. When there is not enough tooth structure to affix a crown, this is the only option. Sometimes a tooth has been broken below the gum line. In this instance, crown lengthening is very successful in exposing more of the tooth, so that the dentist has something to work with.
