Slave Lake Dental has the capacity to perform some dental surgeries such as crown lengthening and graphing. Dr. Stone has experience in performing these types of dental surgeries.
What is a crown lengthening?
Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure performed by a qualified dentist to expose a greater amount of tooth structure for the purpose of subsequently restoring the tooth prostheticaly. This is done by incising gum tissue around a tooth and, after temporarily displacing the soft tissue, predictably removing a given height of alveolar bone from the circumference of the tooth or teeth being operated on.

What is grafting
Grafting is the surgical use of gum or bone graft to repair or restore your tooth and/or gums.
