Crown Lengthening

Where teeth have been damaged or broken near the gum line we can make the tooth longer so it’s suitable for a new crown instead of having the tooth removed. This is known as crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening: the benefits

  • Can be performed in a single appointment and takes only half an hour to an hour to complete.
  • Treatment can address “gummy smiles”, giving an improved smile aesthetic. A gummy smile is when a person’s gums are very prominently visible when they smile.
  • Crown lengthening enables you to undergo any necessary dental work that otherwise would not have been possible.
  • In exposing more of your tooth, cleaning and flossing your teeth becomes an easier process thereafter.

What to expect from treatment

Your dentist will adjust the level of gum tissue and bone around the tooth that needs attention, creating a healthier gum-to-tooth relationship. In doing so, your dentist has the access they need to reach the edge of the crown and ensure a proper fit to the tooth. This also results in the new crown being less likely to become loose in the future. After the procedure, we may place a protective bandage to help fortify the new gum-to-tooth relationship.
