Appearance of an individual???s smile is net interaction of these components. The periodontal soft and hard tissues are an important determinant of restorative smile esthetics. The crucial point to esthetic smile design is the Management of the periodontal tissues that "frame" each tooth. A technique that makes it possible to sculpt the position of the labial gingival margin to provide additional crown height or length is smile sculpting. This periodontal smile sculpting aids in determining the pre-restorative treatment profile of teeth and create a blueprint for the restorative dentist to enhance a patient's final esthetic treatment results. The crucial point lies in understanding the process is an appreciation of the periodontal principles that govern smile design, mainly the periodontal biologic width and the influence of the underlying hard tissue bony architecture in defining the periodontal envelope from where the teeth emerge.
