Pioneer Valley Periodontics

Crown Lengthening

Periodontal procedures are available to lay the groundwork for restorative and cosmetic dentistry.

Your dentist may recommend crown lengthening to make a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure possible.  Perhaps your tooth is decayed or broken below the gumline or has insufficient tooth structure for a restoration such as a crown or bridge.  Crown lengthening adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored.
