With our focus on your overall health, Perfect Smile Dental Arts is foremost committed to saving teeth. This is why we fill a cavity instead of pulling the tooth. Crown lengthening is a unique procedure that helps save teeth that fractured below the gum line and/or decayed to the point where restoration placement is virtually impossible. When there is not enough tooth structure for a crown to hold on to, this is an option.
Crown lengthening is a routine surgical procedure, which remodels the contour of the gum and bone around the tooth and gives a tooth another chance. In a nutshell all this procedure does is exposing more of healthy tooth structure for us to work with on a mission to save a tooth.
