Crown lengthening is a procedure performed when the margins of a crown or other restoration have to be placed further below the gum tissues than anticipated. A simple surgery is performed in order to provide you with a longer lasting restoration and to keep the tissues from staying inflamed and sore. Crown lengthening can also be utilized for cosmetic purposes as well.
