Crown lengthening can be performed on one or more teeth, most commonly as preparation for a dental crown. A dental crown is a cap that is placed on a broken or decayed tooth in order to restore function and appearance. A crown may also be necessary for completing a more extensive restoration such as a root canal, implant, or dental bridge. Crown lengthening can also be performed as a cosmetic procedure to help you achieve your desired smile by treating what is commonly referred to as a “gummy smile” – excessive gum tissue surrounding the front teeth. 

This surgery is a relatively simple procedure that can be completed in one sitting while you are under local anesthesia. If you are in need of a crown lengthening procedure, talk to your dentist Smiles in Joplin about treatment.
