Purpose: The following case report is about the surgical management of a case of inflammatory gingival hyperplasia with a proportionate design of the anterior teeth to achieve an aesthetic appearance.
Material and Methods: A treatment was planned for smile designing using Chu’s Esthetic Gauge to contour the gingiva followed by simple gingivectomy and gingivoplasty using a 15 BP blade.
Conclusion: The use of Chu’s Aesthetic Gauge gave an easy and accurate measurement for esthetic designing of the anterior crowns producing a good esthetic result. This instrument is used to accurately design the gingival contours of the crowns, thus allowing an aesthetic outcome of such a surgery.
