Crown Lengthening Microsurgery
Case #1: Crown Lengthening Microsurgery
Crown lengthening microsurgery (CDT code D4249) is designed to expose parts of teeth which may have decayed or fractured below the gum line. Your dentist does his best work when all parts of your teeth can be seen. Dr. Korn performs crown lengthening microsurgery to assist in this process.
Dr. Korn performs crown lengthening microsurgery with local anaesthesia. Healthy gum tissue is almost never removed as a result of this microsurgery. In fact, pocket depths are commonly reduced by moving the gum tissue to a healthier location on the root, much like a plastic surgeon moves skin to eliminate wrinkles. This minimally invasive treatment is performed under high magnification so that more work can be performed in a smaller space. The result is super clean roots, very shallow pockets, and easy visibility of the broken or decayed tooth.
Case #2: Cosmetic Crown Lengthening Microsurgery
Crown lengthening microsurgery can also be used to change the look of the front teeth. If your teeth look too short or too wide, chances are that you will benefit from crown lengthening microsurgery to make them look more beautiful.
