Crown lengthening, Biologic shaping or margin on composite build up?

64 Rating(s).


Posted on By Vikram Jain In Periodontics

36 is under treatment for RCT. distal margin is close to the bone.
need help on how to restore distal margin.
once distal margin is restored in composite then where should I place the margins of my crown or an overlay?
should I place margins on the restoration distally?

should I consider crown lenghthening or biologic shaping as demonstrated by Dr Danny Melker.

kindly suggest please.

For sure consider crown lenghthening or biologic shaping as demonstrated by Dr Danny Melker here on Dentalxp.com. Never leave margin of a restoration on core material or composite resin....always a ferrule and on healthy, sound tooth structure. Dr. Salama

You do not need biological shaping here. On a single crown you need buccal and lingual ferrule effect the most, you can do margin elevation technique. I hope it helps. Gregory

which means, I can do composite restoration distally until just above gingiva and then give crown margins on distal composite? Chamfer margins or feather edge? Thanks Greg.
