Crown lengthening is often required when your tooth needs a new crown or other restoration. The tooth has broken or decay extends below the gum line.
Crown lengthening allows us to reach the edge of the tooth, ensuring a proper fit of the crown to the tooth.
Crown lengthening takes approximately 45 minutes but will largely depend on the number of teeth involved. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthetic. Intravenous sedation is also available.
