Terry L. Frost DDS | Crown Lengthening in Bethel


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 or a fracture can cause the loss of tooth structure to the point where repair is virtually impossible without a procedure called crown lengthening. Crown lengthening is a routine surgical procedure which remodels the contour of the gum line. The procedure does not actually lengthen the crown, but rather lowers the gum line. When there is not enough tooth structure to affix a crown, this is an option that may salvage an otherwise nonrestorable tooth if there is enough remaining solid tooth structure below the gum.
