The crown lengthening surgery and the transurgical restoration are alternative procedures to enable the restoration of teeth inaccessible to the conventional techniques and restore the lost biological space. Objective: This study aimed to present clinically the reconstruction of a right maxillary second molar through
crown lengthening surgery associated with transurgical restoration with composite resin in a patient treated in the Integrated Clinics of the University of Ribeirão Preto. Case report: Patient E.H.C.V., female, aged 51 years, attended the dental clinic of the University of Ribeirão Preto. The anamnesis showed a favorable health history and the clinical examination showed great tooth crown destruction of tooth #17. The treatment planning included the crown lengthening
periodontal surgery with regularization of alveolar bone on the buccal surface of tooth #17, rubber dam isolation, the restauration of the compromised area with composite resin, and suture in the same session. After 7 days, the sutures were removed and the restoration polished. Conclusion: It can be concluded that the use of this technique is a viable, fast, and satisfactory solution, with good results, favoring the health and aesthetics, returning function and better social life to the patient.
