Crown Lengthening

It is no secret that dentists are committed to saving teeth. This is why we fill a cavity, instead of pulling the tooth. 

Cavities can decay a tooth to the point where a filling is impossible without a procedure called crown lengthening. Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure, which reshapes the gums to allow more of the tooth to show. The procedure does not actually lengthen the crown, but rather lowers the gum line. When there is not enough tooth structure to hold a crown, this is the only option. Sometimes a tooth has been broken below the gum line. In this instance, crown lengthening is very successful in exposing more of the tooth, so that the dentist has something to work with.
