Crown Lengthening Service in Murray Hill & Rockefeller Center, NY

Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure performed by a dentist to expose a greater height of tooth structure to properly restore the tooth prosthetically. This is done by incising the gingival tissue around a tooth and, after temporarily displacing the soft tissue, predictably removing a given height of alveolar bone from the circumference of the tooth or teeth being operated on. this procedure may be referred by your general dentist to our periodontist, Dr. Wayne Kye.
