We care about your teeth at South 40 Dental Sexsmith! Our dentists offer crown lengthening to those with a decayed tooth.
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 the tooth, where restoration is virtually impossible without a procedure called crown lengthening. Crown lengthening is a routine surgical procedure, which remodels the bottom of the gum line. The procedure does not actually lengthen the crown, but rather lowers the gum line.
When a tooth has been broken below the gum line, crown lengthening helps to expose more of the tooth, leaving the dentist to properly see the tooth.
We're always happy to welcome new patients!
