Crown lengthening

Functional: When a tooth has fractured off at the gum line, decay is at the level of the bone, or sometimes when a new crown needs to be made, there may not be enough visible tooth for the general dentist to build a new tooth on. Crown lengthening, in these cases, is the removal of healthy bone to expose healthy tooth underneath, allowing the dentist to proceed with dental work.
Esthetic: Some people have a “gummy” smile and would like to change that. A periodontist is skilled in removing the “excess” gum tissue so that more tooth shows when you smile.
