Lengthening clinical crown in order to reach a better esthetic result

In modern society the social position of the person has a huge importance and for this reason in psychological and physical plan it is not difficult to explain why people strive for a good looking face, body, a beautiful smile as a guarantee of social prosperity. All these factors help the person to gain more self-confidence, inspire him with a better mood and allow reducing depression rate. Our patients ask both tooth treatment, to spare them of pain, to restore lost teeth and also to make their smile more attractive and beautiful. In this context, modern esthetic dentistry requires from us wider knowledge besides methods of restoration and denture application, therefore the esthetic dentist must be competent in domains like periodontology, implantology, etc. Only a complex approach will allow reaching the best esthetic result.

Healthy gingival tissues, surrounding the tooth, are an integral part of the esthetics.

Gums ideal condition (by Allen, 1988) must have the following parameters:

  • the contour of gum on central incisors is level and symmetrical
  • the contour of gum on lateral incisors is situated with approximately 1 mm lower than on the central
  • the contour of gum on canines passes parallel to the line joining two nipples
  • the contour of gum must harmonize with the line of smile
  • while smiling the alveolar apophysis shouldn’t uncover
  • the height of clinical crowns of central incisors must not be inferior to 11 mm

The non-respect of any of these parameters can considerably influence smile’s beauty as a whole.

One of the methods used to restore the esthetic is crown lengthening.

The procedure of clinical crown lengthening can be performed by two methods — orthodontic «extraction» of tooth and surgical intervention. The first method is used mainly in cases when it is necessary to restore the contour of one tooth’s gum, by observing basic esthetic requirements of the rest of teeth.

Surgical method is used when the contour of gum and length of several teeth change.

To remove the superfluous part of last gum and impart the gum a new esthetic shape, Denta Vita clinic uses successfully LASER.

These and other technologies are used in the dental centre “Denta Vita” located in the centre of Chisinau, where our qualified dentists take advantage of all their experience with the help of the up-to-date equipment for our patients’ benefit.
