Crown lengthening is a procedure that is completed to allow the proper restoration of a tooth with a crown. When a fractured tooth surface or deep cavity does not leave enough solid tooth structure to be a foundation for a crown, the site is reshaped to expose healthy tooth structure.
Crown lengthening can also be used to improve esthetics of people who have short looking teeth or excessive amount of gum tissue.
After surgery we will send any necessary prescriptions for antibiotics and/or pain medication directly to your pharmacy electronically. You will be seen for a follow up visit 1 week later to check on your healing and to remove stitches.
