Esthetic Crown Lengthening
Functional Crown Lengthening
When a tooth has broken or decayed below the gum line, it may be necessary for Dr. Bissell to expose the tooth root and contour the gums and bone to provide a place for your tooth restoration. Functional crown lengthening is commonly used to ready the tooth structure for crowns or bridges when the natural tooth is not visible above the gum line.
Both procedures are performed in roughly one hour. Allow two to three days to heal and six weeks for the tissue to mature before returning to your dentist. Follow up visits are required after seven to ten days to remove stitches and again after several weeks to check your progress.
