Crown Lengthening

It is no secret that dentists are committed to saving teeth. This is why we fill a cavity, instead of pulling the tooth. 

Cavities can decay to the point where restoration is virtually impossible without a procedure called crown lengthening. Crown lengthening is a routine surgery which remodels the contour of the gum line. Contrary to popular belief, it does not actually lengthen the crown, but rather lowers the gum line. When there is not enough tooth structure to affix a crown like if a tooth has been broken below the gum line, crown lengthening is the only option to expose more of the tooth so that the dentist has more room to work.
