Abstract

‘A charming smile can open the doors and knock down barriers that stand between you and a fuller richer life’. However, not all the beautiful people were born that way. Many have taken the advantage of plastic surgery as well as cosmetic surgery. The harmony of the smile is determined not only by shape, position and colour of tooth but also by the gingival tissues. Gingival tissues often undergo pathologic changes leading to gingival recession, black triangles. Management of gingival recession class 1 and class 11 can be managed surgically whereas severe  and extensive recession in multiple teeth can be managed non surgically with a gingival prosthesis.1 Here is  a case report in which a removable gingival prosthesis was used.
