Clinical crown-lengthening

Often when a tooth fractures or has a very large filling and your dentist has recommended a crown to restore the tooth to normal function a crown-lengthening procedure is required.

This procedure involves the removal and re-contouring of the gum and bone surrounding the tooth. This provides your dentist with sufficient tooth to work with in order to place the crown so that it will have a better chance of being retained on the tooth and to allow the gum tissues to be healthy.
