Crown lengthening

If the tooth is damaged to an extent that the dental replacement material comes closer to the bone than 1.4 millimetres, it will lead to permanent irritation and constant inflammation that, if at all, is only halted by uncontrolled bone resorption. Crown lengthening can prevent this. This treatment lengthens the clinical crown of the natural tooth by reducing the adjoining bone as far possible in order to maintain the minimum distance to the artificial filling material. Naturally, due to micro-surgical technologies, there is almost no stress on the adjacent tissue. The interventions are often so small that suturation is not needed.
