Functional crown lengthening around
bleeding crown and veneer restorations

Welcome to Perio-Implant Advisory's first Clinical Quick Tips video. You will learn how to correct gum inflammation and bleeding around existing crown and veneer restorations with functional crown lengthening. I begin the video with a discussion of biologic width and the importance of maintaining this space, and then outline the etiology and treatment of inflammation.

The patient in this case presents with inflamed and bleeding gums, which resulted from anterior crown and veneer restorations that invaded the biologic width. You can watch as I surgically recreate this lost space with a 9.3-micron CO2 laser by reducing the hard and soft tissue through a closed-flap anterior crown lengthening technique.
