Crown lengthening is required when your tooth needs a new restoration and the edge of the restoration is deep below the gum tissue and too close to the bone. The procedure involves adjust the levels of the gum tissue and bone around the tooth to create a more healthy gum-bone-tooth relationship. This ensures that the restoration will have a tight seal while allowing for proper brushing and flossing to maintain the longevity of the restoration. The procedure can be done with the LightWalker laser or traditional methods. The procedure takes less than an hour and results in minimal post operative adjustments. This can also be done for cosmetic desires to create a more natural shape of teeth when the gums have overgrown. Contact us today for a consultation!
