About Dental Crown Lengthening
The crown of the tooth is the enamel portion of the tooth that is exposed above the gum line. In a healthy mouth, the crown extends below the gum line as well.
When is the need for dental crown lengthening indicated?
There are three indications for a dental crown lengthening procedure:
– To expose more of the tooth for a dental crown placement
– To gain access to a decayed area so that a filling can be placed
– To expose more tooth structure for improved aesthetic — to eliminate a “gummy” smile.
