Crown lengthening is a procedure that essentially makes a tooth appears longer. A crown lengthening surgery involves the removal of gum and bone tissue to prepare a tooth for restorative dentistry or to cosmetically enhance the smile. Crown lengthening is a relatively common procedure and it can be done with a local anaesthetic. Once the patient is numbed, a small incision is made around the tooth or teeth needing crown lengthening, the extra gum tissue will be gently pulled away from the tooth so that the bone supporting the tooth is exposed. After the gum tissue is peeled back, its position is contoured to form a better position on the tooth and then a new gum line is shaped to make sure that both sides look the same.
