Esthetic Gingival Covering of Exposed Crown Margins, 2nd Edition - V4353 - CE Video Library

Product Details

Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD

You know the frustrating problem of exposed crown margins.  The gingiva around some beautiful crowns in your patient’s smile zone has receded, and the unsightly junctures between the crowns and the tooth structure are evident.  If the patient has adequate attached gingiva, it is relatively easy to reposition their attached gingiva and recover the crown margins. After a few weeks for gingival healing, the crown margins are once again covered.  This presentation includes:  the indications and contraindications for this procedure; necessary instruments; a close-up clinical demonstration of the procedure; and follow-up of the completed crown margin coverage after normal healing. The information on this DVD will pay for itself after a single procedure!
