The crown lengthening process is intended to shape the gums at the top of the tooth. The main aim is to bring out extra tooth surface for cosmetic or restorative function by adjusting the level of the exposed tooth. There are many dental conditions which require restorations using this process. Most common is extreme tooth decay under the gum line. An additional situation when this procedure is performed is when you have a fractured tooth that has broken off from below the present gum line.
Reinstating Damaged Teeth
This process plays a very important role in restoring your damaged teeth. There may be extreme tooth decay that results in broken teeth or that has been destroyed under the gum line. By exposing the tooth, this process offers a steady base for the ultimate tooth reinstatement.
The process is often used at Anthem Periodontics for supporting cosmetic dental processes. It is used in many situations where your gum extends too far down the tooth, causing it to appear extremely short. This will enhance the vulnerability to any kind of gum disease. By removing this added gum tissue you can reinstate a normal look and improve your smile immediately.
The Crown Lengthening Process
The crown lengthening procedure is executed under local anesthesia by our periodontists. This can be incorporated with sedation if you need it. The chosen part of your gums is then contoured by way of tissue elimination. The main aim is to extend the suitable teeth and create greater gum line symmetry.
