This patient needed gum surgery in order to improve her periodontal health. Gum surgery was also necessary to improve the contours of her final restorations, because her front teeth appeared too short.


Periodontal crown lengthening surgery was completed prior to restorative treatment. This improved her periodontal health, made her gum line more even and exposed more of each of her teeth, for more attractive restorations. The dazzling result would not have been possible without periodontal surgery.
