Restorative Crown Lengthening
If a tooth is in need of a filling to correct a cavity or a new restoration (like a crown) to protect damaged dental structure, an excess of gum tissue can make it difficult for your general dentist to perform the procedure. Thankfully, crown lengthening can reveal more of the healthy tooth so that it can be properly cared for. After Dr. Carnow has gently recontoured the tissue, the affected tooth can be treated within a few weeks.
Aesthetic Crown Lengthening
Alternatively, Dr. Carnow can perform crown lengthening for purely cosmetic reasons, such as an overly “gummy” or unsymmetrical appearance that the patient dislikes. Our team will be as precise as possible to ensure a pleasing, healthy appearance that helps you smile with confidence again.
