Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure to remove excess gum tissue, bone, or both to expose more of a tooth. The reason for the procedure is for exposed decayed or broken areas of the tooth, and sometimes for cosmetic reasons. A periodontist or a gum specialist performs a crown lengthening procedure to expose more tooth structure before fitting a bridge or performing another restorative dental procedure.
