Crown lengthening is often performed for cosmetic reasons on patients with a “gummy smile,” an abundance of gum tissue that makes their teeth appear unusually short. In some cases, the dentist may also need to remove some bone as well.
A patient may also undergo the procedure to treat a severe case of gum disease. In this case, the surgery is often referred to as a gingivectomy and only involves the removal of the diseased gum tissue.
Either way, your dentist will remove the necessary tissue before reshaping the remaining tissue and stitching it back into place.
