Crown Lengthening is a common surgical procedure people undergo for numerous issues. Dental crowns and Bridges in order to function properly they need to be retained firmly on an existing tooth structure. However, when the existing tooth cannot hold the crown, a crown lengthening procedure can prove to be helpful.
It is mostly needed for broken short teeth or the ones that are affected by tooth decay. The procedure shaves the bone down and reduces gum tissue so that the more part of the tooth is above the surface of the gum and can be engaged by the crown. This treatment is also suitable for people who want to fix their “gummy smile”. In this condition, the gums are more prominent than the teeth. The latter look smaller, despite having the normal size.

  • Consultation

    Like other dental procedures, the process for crown lengthening starts with an initial consultation session. In this session, the dental expert decides if the patient is an eligible candidate for this surgery or not. Their oral health and history is taken into consideration for this purpose.

  • Anaesthesia

    Before the surgery starts, the patient is given anaesthesia to numb the area. This way, they do not feel any pain or discomfort during the surgery.

  • Cutting of the Gum

    This is where the actual process starts. The extra amount of gums is cut and separate from the tooth. It is done to make the tooth more prominent.

  • Bone Adjustment around the root

    The bone level around the teeth is also adjusted to give it more visibility. However, this step may not be performed for every patient.

  • Suture the Gums

    After the surgery is complete, the surgical area is cleaned. Then, the dental specialist sutures the gums.
