Crown Lengthening Treatment
The "crown" of a tooth is that part that appears above the gums. Many a times more of the tooth below the gums must be exposed to fill a cavity near the gum line or place a new crown on a broken tooth. "Crown lengthening" provides more tooth structure for this to to be done. Many people whose teeth are quite small in relation to the gum tissue are often conscious of their smile. This condition may create an unattractive smile. An uneven gum line can often be distracting the listener while you are speaking. The gum line, and the bone just beneath the gum line, may be lowered to change the appearance of your smile. This creates a more even gum line or make the teeth appear longer. "Crown lengthening" refers to re contouring of both gum and supporting bone. This procedure when performed atPartha dental is a laser assisted crown lengthening process.
Crown Lengthening - Laser Assisted
Crown Lengthening is used to allow more solid tooth structure to be available for teeth restoration. The process involves the removal of gum tissue and/or bone or both so that more tooth structure is accessible. When a tooth needs to be rebuilt or restored, but there is not enough tooth is left to support a secure restoration,then the crown lengthening procedure is done.
Traditionally crown lengthening is done through surgical intervention and there is considerable extent of swelling and discomfort.
