Dental crown lengthening involves the reshaping of excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of your natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth, to your gum line, or to several teeth to expose a more natural confident smile. A dental crown lengthening also helps make a restorative or cosmetic dental treatment possible. This is recommended if your tooth is decayed, broken below the gum line, or has insufficient tooth structure for a restoration like a dental crown or bridge. Crown lengthening adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of your tooth so it can be restored.x
Glendora Crown Lengthening
To improve a “gummy” smile because of teeth appearing too short, a dental crown lengthening will be recommended by your Glendora dentist. Your teeth may actually have the proper lengths but they are covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this, a crown lengthening procedure will help.
