Crown Lengthening

What is crown lengthening?

Crown lengthening is a treatment we use when there isn’t enough tooth available for a repair.

Why might I need a crown lengthening?

Crown lengthening treatments are most commonly performed when a crown is needed but there isn’t enough tooth available to secure the restoration in place.

They are also used in some cases to complete another dental restoration such as an implant or bridge. Some patients also decide to get a crown lengthening treatment because they have a ‘gummy’ smile.

What happens during the treatment?

We will give you a local anaesthetic so you don’t feel any pain or discomfort. If you’re particularly nervous about the treatment we can also administer IV sedation which will completely relax you.

During the treatment, we’ll gently reduce the tissue of the gum that surrounds the tooth or teeth, before shaving down the bone. This will reveal more of the tooth and make sure more of it is visible above the surface of the gum.
