The Dedication of Dentists to Tooth Preservation is Well Known
Because of this, we choose to treat cavities rather than extract teeth.
Without a process known as crown lengthening, cavities can deteriorate a tooth to the point where restoration is all but impossible. A common surgical technique that alters the gum line’s contour is crown lengthening. The treatment lowers the gum line rather than really lengthening the crown. This is the only solution when there is not enough tooth structure to attach a crown.
