Today's restorative dentist faces an apparent increase in patients exhibiting tooth wear that may result in shortened teeth, making crowning these teeth problematic. In addition, it is evident that patients are becoming more aware of the importance of a pleasing smile.

This course explores crown lengthening as one way in which the restorative dentist can address both clinical demands. There will be a hands-on crown lengthening practical session on pigs, with a chance to practice both newer methods of bone removal with the Piezosurgery units as well as some more traditional methods.
