Will crown lengthening (removing/shaving down bone) weaken endodontically treated natural teeth?
Doctor Answers 2
It would be really enlightening in your case to see a picture for a recommendation. There are several options depending on how uncomfortable you feel with the front emax crowns, if you wish to change them or not. Crown lengthening is almost mandatory to do before the crowns are cemented. If they raise your gum line they will probably need to match the other gum lines of adjacent teeth as well to preserve harmony. And if done, they will have to re-do the crowns to make the margin of the new crown reach the new length. If they try to pull down the existing crown and add porcelain to reach the length and the recumbent them, I am afraid the aesthetic resultas and long term resistance might not work.
