An interdisciplinary approach to esthetics requires a comprehensive treatment plan formulated through evaluation of several restorative and periodontal parameters that influence the esthetic zone. A total of 25 subjects (13 women and 12 men, with an age range of 18 to 23 years) participated in the study. Parameters such as gingival biotype on the labial aspect, crown width to crown length ratio, and interdental papilla proportion, with respect to the maxillary anterior teeth, were determined. An attempt was made to establish a correlation between these components, and a positive correlation was found. A careful preoperative diagnosis of these parameters is thus essential, especially in the esthetic zone.
