Parklands Dental Practice, 14a Thomasville, Caerphilly CF83 2RE
A functional crown lengthening removes excess gum tissue so that a crown restoration can cover the tooth being restored.
The gum and bone tissue around the area are cut, reshaped and stitched, so a more natural tooth is exposed. You can have only one tooth treated or get the entire gum line treated for an even and natural smile.
The treatment can be done in as little as an hour, but it can take longer if both bone and soft tissues are being removed.
Your stitches are removed after 1-2 weeks. The site should heal completely in about 3 months.
It is recommended that you maintain a soft food diet for at least a week after surgery.
