Crowning a Broken Tooth Canton, MS
Dental Patient

Minor tooth damage can be fixed with a simple dental filling or bonding. However, if you have suffered extensive damage to a tooth, either from decay or trauma, a dental crown may be recommended to fully restore the tooth back to its original form and function. In some cases, the tooth is so damaged that a crown lengthening procedure is required before a crown can be properly placed. This is a minor periodontal procedure that can be performed in the comfort of your dental office.

What Is Crown Lengthening?

Crown lengthening is a routine surgical procedure that will simply help your crown fit better. When a tooth is too short or broken below the gum line, crown lengthening may be necessary to allow the crown to grip better for long-term success. During this procedure, a small portion of the gum tissues and surrounding bone are removed. This may seem like your tooth is actually “taller” or longer, but your gum line is actually just lowered. Crown lengthening is an important step for retention and stability of the crown and to prevent fracture of the crown from the root.

If you have a tooth that is broken near the gum line or badly damaged, we can determine if you need crown lengthening before a crown can be placed. At SmileBuilders Inc., you can rest assured that our office adopts the latest, most advanced technology in modern dentistry. Therefore, we integrate methods to preserve your comfort at every step. Call our Canton, Lucedale or Byram office today to schedule your tooth restoration.

What our happy patients say see all reviews

  • 150% for sure. Dr. Preston Cobbler one of the best dentists I've gone to in my years of life. He is great man, personally that can't be of as a pretender. I didn't know he had got started in my mouth, I had a broken tooth to the root, I didn't know he had started the work, he had finished the work in my mouth. He will be my dentist for the duration of my life!! I earnestly would rate him a 10 on the work in my mouth. Thanks Dr Cobbler for your kindness, work ability, knowledge, and sense of feeling for your patients pain.
