The rehabilitation of anterior dental aesthetics involves a multitude of disciplines, each with its own methodologies for achieving a predefined goal. The literature is awash with different techniques for a given predicament, based on both scientific credence, as well as empirical clinical judgements. An example is crown lengthening for correcting uneven gingival zeniths, increasing clinical crown lengths, and therefore, reducing the amount of maxillary gingival display that detracts from… 
Interdisciplinarity in Anterior Oral Rehabilitation: Periodontal Plastic Surgery with Aesthetic Restorative Treatment
TLDR
The use of periodontal surgical guide with subsequent restorative treatment can be an alternative to increase the predictability of rehabilitation in aesthetic regions.
Subepithelial connective tissue graft conjugated to minimally invasive ceramic laminates-1 year follow-up.
TLDR
A case report of the treatment of a patient with marked incisal wear and gingival recessions and the stability of the surgery and the laminates after 1 year of follow-up is presented.
Minimal invasive microscopic tooth preparation in esthetic restoration: a specialist consensus
TLDR
This article attempts to illustrate the concept, core elements, and indications of microscopic minimally invasive tooth preparation, physiological basis of dental pulp, periodontium and functions involved in tool preparation, position ergonomics and visual basis for dentists, comparison of tooth preparation by naked eyes and a microscope, and comparison of different designs.
Multidisciplinary aesthetic rehabilitation: case report.
TLDR
A clinical case that performed the aesthetic rehabilitation of a patient through the integration of different dental specialties (Orthodontics, Periodontics and Dentistry) concluded that multiprofessional planning made possible the aesthetic / functional rehabilitation of the patient.
Comprehensive analysis of biomechanical expedience teeth implementation preparation under different minimally-invasive approaches for types of prosthetic constructions
TLDR
The obtained results indicate that the greatest actual volume of excessive reduction of teeth hard tissues is observed in cases of preparation of such under different types of full-contour crowns, especially in casesof canines, premolars and molars.
Correction of Gingival Architecture Using the Biologically Oriented Preparation Technique in Two Patients with Human Immunodeficiency Virus
TLDR
Two female patients positive for human immunodeficiency virus and receiving antiretroviral treatment presented with esthetic concerns due to fixed dental prostheses in the anterior region are demonstrated to demonstrate how short clinical crowns and gingival recession in the esthetic zone can be successfully treated with the biologically oriented preparation technique to avoid surgical procedures in patients with human immunosuppressive virus.
Effect of CAD/CAM Guide Plate Combined With Socket-Shield Technique in Immediate Implantation of Anterior Teeth Aesthetic Area and Its Influence on Aesthetics
TLDR
The application of CAD/CAM guide plate combined with SST in immediate implantation of anterior teeth aesthetic area has a good effect, which can improve the accuracy of implantation, improve the periodontal environment, reduce bone resorption, reduce complications, improve aesthetics, and have high patient's satisfaction.
Should we fear direct oral anticoagulants more than vitamin K antagonists in simple single tooth extraction? A prospective comparative study
TLDR
DOAC and VKA patients showed the same incidence of bleeding complications after simple single tooth extraction, and non-ceasing of DOAC therapy seems to be appropriate for simple single dental extractions.

Contemporary crown-lengthening therapy: a review.
TLDR
periodontal crown lengthening can be used for esthetic enhancement in the presence of delayed passive eruption and can establish a biological width and, if needed, a ferrule length facilitating prosthetic management.
Surgical crown lengthening: a 12-month clinical wound healing study.
TLDR
During a 1-year period of healing following surgical crown lengthening, the marginal periodontal tissue showed a tendency to grow in a coronal direction from the level defined at surgery.
Clinical comparison of desired versus actual amount of surgical crown lengthening.
TLDR
Although more experienced periodontists removed a larger amount of bone, the amount of root surface exposed was still short of the initially desired biologic width, which showed that the default objective of 3 mm between planned restoration margin and alveolar crest was not routinely achieved.
