Crown Lengthening Preservation of Broken Teeth

Contact Us

Overview

If you have a cracked or broken tooth or a naturally short tooth, your dentist may want to put an artificial crown on this – a tooth-shaped cap placed above your actual tooth – for structural reasons. In a process called “crown lengthening,” our periodontists step in to move the gum tissues and reshape bone in order to create enough of the actual tooth to support the crown.

Crown Lengthening can also be done to modify your gum margin to help expose a broader and more natural smile.

Treatment

  • Close coordination with the patient's dentist to develop a treatment plan and determine the best restoration.
  • Precise removal of the targeted gum tissue and bone (if necessary) to expose the dental crown.
  • Home care instructions to prevent tooth infection and gum infection.
