Crown Lengthening

Excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth, to the gumline, or to several teeth to expose a natural, broad smile. Dr. Afar may also recommend crown lengthening to make a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure possible - perhaps if a tooth is decayed, broken below the gumline, or has insufficient tooth structure for a restoration, such as a crown or bridge. CL adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored.
