Crown lengthening involves removing excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of a natural tooth. This can be done to one or many teeth.
Crown lengthening may be done to improve the appearance of your smile or may be required to expose enough of a decayed or broken tooth, so that another cosmetic procedure such as bridges, crowns, veneers or inlays and onlays may be done.
