Crown lengthening Midtown Murray Hill

Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that facilitates restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Crown lengthening is often needed when a tooth is decayed, broken below the gum line, or has insufficient tooth structure to support 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. This procedure increases the predictability of the restorative treatment, eliminates chronic inflammation and enhances the aesthetics of the crown.
