This procedure is performed to enhance the tooth contours aesthetically, or to reshape the tooth surface so that new restorations can be attached firmly.
There are a few reasons why crown lengthening procedures are necessary. Patients may have short teeth or have suffered severe decay, causing the teeth to go below the gum line. Sometimes, a tooth may become broken due to impact, causing the tooth to break off beneath the gum line.
Crown lengthening can also be carried out for aesthetic purposes, increasing the amount of visible teeth area, to create a more natural and balanced smile.
The recovery time for this procedure takes around 3 months. During this time, you can resume normal activities as your gums heal. Refrain from eating sticky foods in the first 24 hours, and any strenuous activities for the first 48 to 72 hours after the procedure.Back to treatments
