Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure to remove excess gum tissue, bone, or both to expose more of a tooth. Exposed, decayed or broken areas of the tooth are reasons people will want to undergo it, coupled with cosmetic reasons. A periodontist or a gum specialist will then perform a crown lengthening procedure to expose more tooth structure, before fitting a bridge or performing another restorative dental procedure.
