The crown is the part of the tooth that is visible above the gumline. Some people request crown lengthening for cosmetic purposes, while others need the procedure to expose decayed or broken areas of teeth. Crown lengthening may also be performed to expose more tooth structure before they fitting a bridge or performing another restorative dental procedure. Recovery can depend on the type of procedure, and the dentist who performed it will give detailed instructions. Not everyone is eligible for crown lengthening surgery. Speak with us about this.
