The Crown Lengthening Surgery: Two Case Reports
Keywords:Clinical Crown, Crown Lengthening, Dentogingival Complex, Aesthetic
Clinical crown of the tooth is the distance from gingival margin to incisal edge or occlusal surface of the tooth. Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure designed to increase the extent of the supragingival tooth structure, so that the clinician can restore the tooth. The crown lengthening procedure (CLP) is commonly used to maintain the dentogingival complex in optimal conditions and to correct aesthetic defects through a smile design. The aim of the current case reports is to evaluate the implications of CL in routine dental practice. The diagnosis requirements, procedures of crown lengthening, importance of crown lengthening and esthetic improvements after crown lengthening are discussed in different sessions.
