Functional Crown Lengthening

What is functional crown lengthening?

During functional crown lengthening, our periodontists will gently “peel” the gum disease away from the affected teeth and reshape the bone and gum tissue in the area to expose healthy tooth structure. This will provide our periodontists and team with the proper amount of healthy tooth required to support a crown or filling.

For more information about crown lengthening in Greensboro, North Carolina, and to schedule a consultation with our periodontists, Dr. Luis Benitez and Dr. Veronica Longville, please contact Greensboro Perio at 336-379-8377 and speak with a member of our team.
