Objective: This article describes a surgical crown lengthening double guide, which was digitally obtained to improve diagnosis, treatment outcome, and follow-up. Clinical considerations: The rehabilitation of anterior dental esthetics should involve interdisciplinary and facially driven planning for achieving pleasant long-term outcomes. Surgical crown lengthening is one of the most common periodontal surgery, which can be assisted by digital tools to improve surgical planning and follow-up. Conclusion: The double guide for surgical crown lengthening allows the proper management of hard and soft tissues for achieving a predefined goal based on biological requirements and facially driven planning. In addition, the digital quality control allows the follow-up compared with the pre-operative condition and planned treatment plan. Clinical significance: The use of digital tools allow the clinician to develop a facially driven planning with proper communication with the team and patient, leading to a shorter, more predictable, and less invasive surgical technique, reducing postoperative inflammation and increasing patient comfort.
