Summary:

The aesthetic appearance of the maxillary anterior dentition is determined by the relationship between the shape, contour, color, position, and arrangement of the teeth to the healthy labial gingiva and the interdental papillae. When restoring the anterior dentition, the objective of a harmonious natural appearance of the teeth, surrounded by healthy soft tissue, should be achieved through a controlled predictable treatment protocol. In periodontally compromised teeth, the prognosis of each tooth should be assessed during the provisional phase of the treatment in environmental conditions simulating the expected definitive rehabilitation. In such complex cases, the provisional restoration serves not only as a diagnostic tool, but also as a complementary treatment modality in redesigning the appearance of the soft tissue. This article demonstrates the rehabilitation protocol and the various treatment stages of six anterior maxillary teeth, utilizing reproducible and controlled techniques for the achievement of predictable biocompatible, functional, and aesthetic results.

A Biometric Approach To Aesthetic Crown Lengthening: Part 1 - Midfacial Considerations
Although human dental anatomy is taught in university curricula, clinicians often witness restorations that are not proportional to one another. Dental restorations should also be proportional to periodontal supporting tissues as an essential aspect of dental anatomy. Measurements can be performed directly on a patient’s teeth with aesthetic gauges used to confirm the correct position of the supporting osseous topography. This article demonstrates a technique using these gauges to objectively determine the correct position of the underlying hard tissues and render predictable, aesthetic treatment.
