Some teeth can appear short or square and be covered up by too much gum tissue. The gum line can be repositioned to expose the full contour of your natural tooth and give you an immediate and dramatic improvement in your smile! Your new crown fits over your natural tooth for structural reasons if your tooth has broken off, become cracked, or as part of another procedure such as dental implants and root canals.
At our office in Detroit crown lengthening is offered as a surgical procedure that places a new crown on your tooth when decay extends deep below your gum line.
If not corrected, the surrounding gums will remain chronically inflamed and tender. Typically taking an hour, a functional crown lengthening adjusts the levels of your gums and underlying bone surrounding your affected tooth that exposes more of the tooth surface. The goal is to provide enough tooth structure to secure your new crown in place.
There is minimal or no post-operative discomfort after a crown lengthening procedure. We recommend that you return for a follow-up appointment two weeks after your visit to evaluate healing and remove any dissolving stitches. We strive to provide you with the best crown lengthening Detroit has to offer, so visit us today!
