Non-carious Cervical Lesions Associated with Multiple Gingival Recessions in the Maxillary Arch. A Restorative-periodontal Effort for Esthetic Success. A 12-month Case Report
Allegri, Mario Alessio / Landi, Luca / Zucchelli, Giovanni
Restoration of non-carious cervical lesions (NCCLs) represents a major challenge for resin materials due to the different adhesive properties of the tooth structure, the biomechanical aspects of the cervical area, and the difficulties in the access and isolation of the operative field. Furthermore, NCCLs should be approached with a complete understanding of the role played by the marginal periodontal tissue. Whenever a cervical lesion is associated with a gingival recession, the interplay between restorative dentistry and periodontology is decisive for full esthetic and long-term success. A case report is presented dealing with the treatment of NCCLs associated with multiple gingival recessions using a combined restorative and periodontal treatment with a 12-month follow-up.
