Surgical Crown Lengthening

Surgical crown lengthening involves removing some of the excess tissue around the tooth and removing some of the excess bone around the tooth. The goal is to move the bone level 3mm away from your crown margin. This will give your periodontist the access needed to properly prepare your restoration. This will also permit your gum tissue to form a tight biologic seal around the tooth so the area is maintained in a state of health. You need to wait 6 weeks after the surgical crown lengthening before you can get your final restoration.

PATIENT REVIEWS

Due to the severity of my dental needs, my regular dentist referred me to Dr. Engen’s office. Being referred to a periodontal specialist is not something I would wish upon anyone, and it was difficult going to another dentist. However, from the minute I entered their office I was greeted by professional, friendly staff members who acknowledged me with a warm smile and a pleasant, cheerful welcome. The doctors and hygienists demonstrated a high level of expertise and technical competency by effectively communicating the options available to address my dental needs. Each and every staff member I encountered, from the receptionist, to the doctors are extremely dedicated to creating a long term relationship with each one of their patients, including taking the time to educate each patient about oral hygiene. The staff at your office works harmoniously, cooperatively and effectively as a team to make your time with them as productive as possible. I would highly recommend this office to anyone seeking resolution to any dental issues and be assured you will be pleasantly surprised with your time with them.
