Crown Lengthening


Perhaps your tooth is decayed, broken below the gum line, or has insufficient remaining tooth structure to support a restoration, such as a crown or bridge. Crown lengthening adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be succesfully restored.  

Crown lengthening is also performed for cosmetic reasons. Excessive or bulky gum tissue can be removed to reveal a more natural, esthetic smile.   This can be performed for just one tooth, or to your entire gum line to provide a smile makeover.    

Whether you have crown lengthening to improve function or esthetics, patients often receive the benefits of both: a beautiful new smile and improved periodontal health – your keys to smiling, eating and speaking with comfort and confidence.

Dr. Sarosh Dastoor works very closely with your referring doctor in coordinating and communicating about your crown lengthening surgery and final crown appointments.
