Crown lengthening is a dental procedure that is used to improve the appearance of the teeth. Crown lengthening can be used to create the illusion of longer, fuller teeth. It can also be used to correct a “gummy” smile.
Crown lengthening is a common dental surgery that reshapes the gum line contour. The technique does not truly extend the crown, but rather lowers the gum line. When there isn’t enough tooth structure to support a crown, this is the only choice. A tooth has been fractured below the gum line in some cases. Crown lengthening is particularly effective in exposing more of the tooth in these situations, allowing the dentist to administer further treatment.
Crown lengthening is a safe and effective treatment option. However, as with any dental procedure, there are some risks associated with crown lengthening. These risks include gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.
