ALVARADO-NUNEZ, Alejandra; RAMIREZ-DUARTE, Sonora; NIETO-RAMIREZ, Alejandro  y  GARCIA-CONTRERAS, René. Aesthetic crown lengthening prior to prosthetic rehabilitation. Case report. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.3, pp.170-172. ISSN 0719-0107.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-01072018000300170.

Introduction:

One of the most frequently performed procedures for aesthetics restoration in the maxillary anterior area is the crown lengthening, which is indicated in the presence of an insufficient length of the clinical crown of a tooth, of cavities or subgingival fractures and for the improvement of aesthetics in patients with uneven gingival margin.

Objective:

The aim of this article is to present the aesthetic crown lengthening performed in a patient with discrepant margins and loss of the papillae in the maxillary anterior area, referred from the prosthesis department for subsequent prosthetic rehabilitation.

Results:

Through the surgical procedure, the correction and restoration of the gingival margins were achieved.

Conclusions:

The maxillary anterior area is the most aesthetically compromised area, which is why the interdisciplinary planning of the treatment is essential to ensure its success.
