What Is Crown Lengthening?

Lengthening the crown is a procedure performed by a cosmetic dentist. It involves removing part of the tissue from the gums to expose more of your teeth, making them look longer. Crown lengthening can help. Dental surgeons like the group of Surgeons in Drdentistsliverpool perform crown lengthening by recontouring gum tissue, and sometimes bone, to expose more of a tooth’s surface for a crown. It’s a common procedure and often takes less than an hour to complete.
