The aim of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the periodontal response of periodontally healthy teeth prosthetically restored using a featheredge finish line preparation combined with a light rotary curettage (gingittage). A total of 137 restored teeth were included in the study. Mean follow-up time was 18.2 months (range: 6 to 60 months). Bleeding on probing was noted in 18% of cases, while the Plaque Index was found to be 11%. The probing depth in 99.4% of cases was ≤ 3 mm. In only 7 cases (5.1%), a slight restoration margin exposure was recorded. Although randomized controlled studies with longer follow-up are advocated, the present investigation seems to suggest that this protocol is a viable procedure.
