Broadly speaking, crown lengthening procedures can be divided into two categories; esthetic crowning lengthening and functional crown lengthening.

At LOBO, DDS, our team can reshape your gum to give the perfect smile that you have always desired. Functional crown lengthening is a restorative procedure, most commonly, it is done due to tooth decay which involves the root of the tooth beneath the gum line, in these cases, crown lengthening can provide you with better functionality and a more esthetic smile.
