modern methods of
tooth crown lengthening

Tooth crown lengthening is a dental procedure that involves reshaping the gums and bone around a tooth to expose more of the tooth’s crown.

It is often required when a tooth is broken below the gum line or to better anchor prosthetics such as crowns or bridges.

At Warsaw Dental Center, we use the most advanced crown lengthening techniques to ensure optimal results in terms of both functionality and aesthetics.

Step 1: Consultation
The first visit involves a detailed consultation with the dentist to assess the condition of the tooth and discuss the goals and expectations of the patient regarding the procedure.

Step 2: Diagnosis
Diagnostic tests, such as X-rays, are performed to accurately assess the condition of the tooth and surrounding tissues, as well as the amount of crown extension needed.

Step 3: Treatment Planning
Development of an individual treatment plan that determines how the crown extension will be performed, including the choice of appropriate methods and materials.

Step 4: Tooth Preparation
Gentle removal of part of the gum and, if necessary, bone around the tooth to expose more of the tooth’s crown and allow for proper fitting of the future restoration, such as a crown.

Step 5: Treatment
Depending on the needs, treatment may involve rebuilding the tooth with composite material or other filling, preparing the tooth for the final restoration.

Step 6: Restoration
Placement of a temporary or permanent crown or other prosthetic restoration that restores full functionality and aesthetics of the tooth.

Step 7: Check-up and Adjustment
A follow-up visit after the procedure, during which the dentist assesses the adaptation of the tissue, as well as the function and appearance of the restored tooth, making any necessary adjustments.
