Contemporary Crown Lengthening

Course Description

Crown lengthening is a commonly required surgical procedure to improve access to restoration margins, lengthen the clinical crown or to improve aesthetics. It can aid clinicians in achieving ideal restorations and provide the patient with improved aesthetics. While the procedure is very predictable, a thorough understanding the biological and anatomical limitations of crown lengthening is necessary for proper treatment planning. The aim of this lecture is to review the periodontal-restorative interface, with the ultimate goal of allowing clinicians to achieve improved restorative and aesthetic outcomes in clinical practice.

 

Course Objectives:

 

1.      Understand the concepts of biologic width and ferrule and how they relate to proper treatment planning

2.      Review the indications and contraindications for functional and esthetic crown lengthening

3.      Understand the etiology and treatment options for excessive gingival display

4.      Review basic surgical techniques and armamentarium

           Discuss the healing process after surgical crown lengthening

5.
