The dental crown lengthening procedure in is a cosmetic dental surgery. It reduces the gums and corrects gum line defects, thus making the teeth more visible. Many patients opt for a dental crown lengthening procedure because it is the optimal solution to the excessive gingival display.
Crown lengthening like any other cosmetic dentistry surgery requires taking dental tests using X-rays. This procedure substitutes some parts of broken or decayed teeth if they are hidden under the gums. This solution eliminates the need for dental extraction.
