What is
Clinical Crown Lengthening?

Crown lengthening is an oral surgery treatment that involves removing excess gum tissue, and possibly some bone, around the upper teeth to make them look longer. A periodontist frequently performs this procedure. If the gum line is uneven, crown lengthening can sculpt the gum line to produce a more symmetrical smile.

Crown lengthening may also be performed for other dental reasons. For example, crown lengthening may be necessary to support the installation of a crown. A dental crown, or cap, may be required due to a cracked or damaged tooth. Untreated cavities frequently become too large to be corrected with a filling, leaving you in the position of needing a dental crown. Additionally, crowns can also cover misshapen or discolored teeth.
