You routinely face these frustrating challenges in your practice in situations such as: teeth in the smile zone that have uneven and unsightly gingival levels; teeth for which you are planning crowns that do not have adequate clinical crown length to provide optimum retention of crowns. Simple laser or electrosurgery soft tissue removal solves some of the problems. However, what is the solution to those clinical situations where removal of soft-tissue is judged to be inadequate? Crown lengthening is a simple surgical procedure that should be incorporated into every practice. You need only determine the most acceptable level of the periodontal supporting structures, make a few easy incisions, make a flap, remove the appropriate amount of osseous tissue, reposition the gingival flap, and await healing. Crown lengthening, including needed recontouring of underlying osseous tissue, should be a part of every restorative practice.
