Crown Lengthening Treatments at Marylebone Implant Centre

Crown lengthening is a common procedure that can be performed here at Marylebone Implant Centre. It’s a procedure that is performed to expose greater amounts of your tooth structure. The procedure is done surgically by incising the gingival tissue around your tooth or teeth to give you a broader smile.

You may also be advised to receive a crown lengthening procedure in order for you to get a cosmetic dental procedure performed correctly. There are many reasons why you may get crown lengthening including tooth decay, if you have a broken tooth below the gum line, or you don’t have enough tooth structure to have the tooth restored properly through a bridge or crown.

Crown lengthening for cosmetic purposes will involve adjusting the levels of the bone and gum tissue around your tooth or teeth to achieve a more level tooth to gum ratio. Once the procedure is performed, you will then have the proper levels needed for the restoration process to happen correctly resulting in a beautiful smile. When performed properly you will not only have a beautiful smile now, but you will also have enough tooth structure in the event that you would have to undergo another restoration procedure in the future.

It’s estimated that the procedure should take about one hour to complete but each patient is different. So talk with our trained staff to gather all the information needed before deciding if crown lengthening is right for you. After the procedure is over you will have sutures, in place to ensure that the new tooth-to-gum relationship will heal properly. You should expect to come back to see the dentist about two weeks after the procedure to ensure that everything is healing properly and the sutures are removed.
