Sometimes in order to make room for a crown, your dentist will have to perform crown lengthening in order to expose more of your natural tooth. If there isn’t enough of a tooth exposed to attach a crown, your dentist may recommend crown lengthening.
At Cirocco Dental Center, to expose more of the tooth, we will remove some gum tissue or bone to expose the existing tooth so a crown can be placed without any issues. Crown lengthening is also performed to remove excess gum tissue that cause a “gummy smile” to expose your teeth and enhance your smile.

What Does The Crown Lengthening Process Look Like?
Crown lengthening involves making small cuts that will pull gums away from the teeth. This helps to expose teeth roots and nearby bone. Sometimes removing some gum tissue isn’t enough to expose the right amount of tooth, so your dentist will remove bone near the roots as well.
Your dentist will administer local anesthesia before the procedure to numb any pain during the process. It is an outpatient procedure, allowing patients to heal quickly and fully without missing a beat. However there will be a little bit of pain following the crown lengthening procedure, so your dentist or oral surgeon will likely prescribe you with something to relieve the pain.
