Crown Lengthening

1. A tooth can break in such a way that the margin of the crown has to be placed deep in the sulcus.

2. In such cases the bone is surgically exposed.

3. The bone is contoured in line with the requirements of the case and the gums are accordingly reshaped.

4. The margin of the restoration can now be placed in an ideal position.
