Crown Lengthening

When getting a crown, your dentist must prepare your tooth to receive the crown. Sometimes there is not enough tooth surface above the gum line to accomplish this. Dr. Witkin, Dr. Centurion, and Dr. Besu can use crown lengthening to provide more tooth surface. This ensures a more esthetic and stable crown for long-term success and comfort. Also, if you have a "gummy" smile or an uneven gum line, crown lengthening can make your teeth look longer and more even.
