Crown Lengthening

When you undergo a dental restoration procedure such as the placement of a crown, the dentist must first prepare your gums. Some patients have a “gummy” mouth in which they have a high concentration of gum tissues covering the tooth. In order for the doctor to “anchor” your new crown he may have to reshape excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of your natural tooth.

Crown lengthening can be used on either an individual tooth or multiple teeth. This procedure can also be used to provide a patient with teeth that are more exposed, therefore providing you with a more natural, beautiful smile.

Our Long Beach Periodontist’s expert knowledge will ensure your procedure is completed effectively. Our number one priority at Bixby Knolls Dental is to ensure you remain comfortable and relaxed throughout your procedure.
