Crown lengthening is a dental surgery to uncover a greater amount of the tooth surface by reshaping the gum tissue. There are a few reasons your dentist may suggest crown lengthening. It might be performed to get ready for rebuilding of teeth that are broken or harmed underneath the gum line.
If you have a crown that stretches out close to the gum line, crown lengthening may be performed to build the space between the crown and the gum tissue to keep the crown from harming the tissue. It is also performed for corrective reasons, to accomplish a more adjusted, engaging look if a grin is ‘sticky’.
