Skilled Functional Crown Lengthening

Crown Lengthening

The crown of a tooth is the visible part of the tooth that shows above the gumline. Sometimes, some of the gum and bone tissue around the tooth needs to be removed so that other procedures, such as placing a dental crown or filling a cavity, can be performed.

This procedure is known as crown lengthening, because many times the teeth will appear longer after removing some bone and repositioning the gums.
