Several techniques have been proposed for clinical crown lengthening procedures. Crown lengthening in esthetic zone can be classified in two basic types: Restorative and non-restorative cases after the crown lengthening is executed. Atraumatic surgical extrusion using a specially designed instrument called periotome was performed in four cases on isolated teeth in esthetic zone. The technique presented is an alternative approach to periodontal surgical procedures consisting orthodontic extrusion and osseous recontouring. It does not result in functional or esthetic deformities especially in the anterior esthetic zone.
