The crown lengthening procedure is recommended to reshape excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one or more teeth to expose a natural, broader smile.
Crown lengthening may also be recommended prior to a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure if a tooth is decayed or broken below the gum line, or has insufficient tooth structure for a porcelain restoration, such as a crown or bridge. Crown lengthening repositions the gum and bone level to expose more of the healthy tooth so it can be properly restored.
