Periodontist Saves the Day
The mantra goes "pink esthetics before white esthetics" and I thoroughly agree. What our scalpel-wielding friends can achieve for our patients is truly remarkable. Here's an anterior restorative case with combination clinical/esthetic crown lengthening that simply would not have been possible without perio surgery:

For such an amazing case, you haven't gotten any attention Ross! I'll try to give you some love!
So let's talk about a case like this. I haven't done a ton of them, but this is what I've done in the past....
I get everything mounted on an articulator, created a waxup and modified the stone so I could give the periodontist a "template" to make sure they removed enough bone and put the tissue where I wanted it. Let them heal and then provisionalize, do any necessary functional and esthetic modifications, and I assume, biocopy what you have in the mouth and go from there with the CEREC. Is this what you did?
And just because I know you have it, did you use the 5 axis mill to create your shells for your provisionals? If you did, you definitely should have thrown that in to make all of us jealous :)
As always Ross, fantastic case!
