The Gingival Margin – Strategies and Techniques to Optimize Soft Tissue Aesthetics in Anterior Tooth Restoration and Replacement

Planning treatment for patients with short clinical crowns, gingival
recession, missing or compromised anterior teeth can often be
complex. The resulting anatomy of the alveolar ridge after periodontal
attachment loss or extraction of a tooth can be a challenge to redevelop
during the restorative process. Teeth with short clinical crowns
or advanced recession require treatment to help create an aesthetic
tooth proportion. Explore numerous techniques that have been
developed to manage the gingival margin position. These include hard
and soft tissue resection and/or augmentation protocols. These can be
used together with immediate prosthetic replacement, orthodontic
space/site management and tooth autotransplantation.
