REPaiR™ Technology for Crown Lengthening Procedures
Crown lengthening is a periodontal procedure often required when excess gum and bone tissue impede oral health, tooth restoration efforts, or esthetic goals concerning the smile. The process of crown lengthening involves the removal of these tissues to reveal more of the underlying tooth structure. To accomplish these objectives in the most efficient way and without any secondary damage to oral structures, Dr. Singh utilizes BIOLASE REPaiR Technology with the WaterLase® laser. This highly advanced laser technology is applied to the following types of crown lengthening procedures:
- Esthetic Crown Lengthening: When excess gum tissue covers an unbalanced amount of tooth structure, the gentle WaterLase® laser is employed to precisely reduce the gum line to a more favorable level. Further benefits include reducing periodontal pocket depths and tissue overgrowth caused by certain medications or biological factors.
- Functional Crown Lengthening: At times, gum and bone tissue may obstruct the ability to place a restoration on a damaged tooth. The WaterLase® laser can be used in such situations to reduce a precise amount of gum and bone structure, increasing the surface area of the tooth and allowing for the placement of a filling, crown or bridge.
When BIOLASE REPaiR™ Technology is incorporated into a crown lengthening treatment plan, the results are precise and immediate, facilitating the ultimate goal of a healthy oral environment.
