What is crown lengthening?

Crown lengthening is a procedure that is done for cosmetic reason or for the purpose of creating room for the restoration. 

Patient with excessive gum tissue on the front teeth will show teeth that appear small and short. By reshaping the bone and gum tissue, we can expose more tooth structure improving the smile. 

Whenever there is a severe decay under the gumline, it is necessary to adjust the level of the bone and gum to create more space to place restorations such as fillings or crowns.
