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 teeth to the point where restoration is virtually impossible without a procedure called crown lengthening. Crown lengthening in Castle Rock is a routine surgical procedure, which remodels the contour of the gum line. The procedure does not actually lengthen the crown but rather lowers the gum line. This is the only option when there is not enough tooth structure to affix a crown. Sometimes a tooth has been broken below the gum line. In this instance, crown lengthening is very successful in exposing more of the tooth so that the dentist has something to work with.
