Rights and Permissions

With the increasing popularity of esthetic dentistry, an understanding of the therapeutic modalities brought about by an interdisciplinary approach has developed. As a result, crown lengthening procedures have become an integral component of the esthetic armamentarium and are utilized with increasing frequency to enhance the appearance and retention of restorations placed within the esthetic zone. The present case is managed with an internal bevel gingivectomy together with bone recontouring without compromising tooth support and esthetics.
