Proposal of a planning protocol for performing aesthetic clinical crown augmentation surgery

Dennis GUIMARÃES, Julio REBOLLAL

Introduction: Crown lengthening surgery for esthetic purposes is based on parameters previously described in the literature; however, there is a difficulty in organizing them and then create a reproducible protocol to make this procedure feasible for dentists. Objective: By presentation of a clinical case, the proposal for use of a table is introduced, created to gather such parameters. Results: At first, the table may seem complex; however, the correct insertion and analysis of data allows planning in a clear and precise manner. Conclusions: Even though it has been used by the authors for some years, the table should be validated by the use by other professionals in the field.

Keywords: Gingivoplasty. Osteotomy. Gummy smile. Altered passive eruption.
