Sometimes, a patient’s teeth are the correct length, but they have excessive gum tissue that obscures the base. Your dentist can correct this with a crown lengthening procedure.
The procedure involves removing excess gum tissue. The dentist then reshapes the bone tissue to reveal more of your natural tooth.
Your dentist may also suggest crown lengthening to facilitate a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure like a crown fitting. If your tooth is decayed or broken below the gum line or there is not enough visible tooth surface for a restoration, your dentist will likely recommend crown lengthening.
