Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that exposes more of a tooth by reshaping bone and gum tissue.

What is crown lengthening?

When teeth are misshapen, damaged or broken, sometimes there is not enough tooth above the gum line to fit a dental crown.

Under local anesthetic, gum tissue and sometimes bone is removed to expose more of the tooth.  Dr. Rima Kanbaragha will have access to the base of the tooth in order to complete the fitting of a dental crown.

A crown lengthening procedure may also be used to improve a “gummy” smile where gum tissue is disproportionate to the length of the tooth. Following the procedure, you can expect a broader, brighter smile.

After the crown lengthening procedure, the gums will be sutured and a sterile bandage may be applied. You will be asked to come back to our dental practice in Arlington after one or two weeks to evaluate the healing.
