Functional Crown Lengthening
Functional crown lengthening is performed when there is not sufficient tooth structure above the gums to retain a restoration or crown. It most likely occurs due to decay or a fracture present just below the gum line. Functional crown lengthening exposes tooth structure by removing and reshaping surrounding bone and gum tissue. The procedure can be performed on any number of teeth, and results in a healthier and more beautiful smile for patients.
