    Dr. Howard Zolot is the best in his profession. He takes time to educated his patients on what periodontal disease does to the bone. My wife has a bad case...
A cavity is below the gum line preventing it from being filled easily.
The periodontist gently opens the area.
He then contours the bone to lower the gum line.
The bone has be lower the level of the gum when it heals.
The area has been closed up and now the cavity is exposed and can be filled.
The cavity has been filled and the procedure is done.

Crown Lengthening

The "crown" is the part of a tooth visible above the gumline.  Sometimes more of the tooth below the gums must be exposed to fill a cavity near the gumline or when placing a new crown on a broken tooth.  "Crown lengthening" provides more tooth structure for this to be done.  This helps to ensure that the general dental procedure is successful and prevents gum irritation.

Procedure: Dr. Zolot administers a local anesthetic and gently recontours excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of your natural tooth using a diode laser.
