The innovations in dental restoration materials during the last decade have enabled the clinician to achieve improved aesthetic results. However, dependence on the materials alone does not necessarily produce predictable aesthetic results. As the learning objective, the author discusses the need for a methodic approach, the observation of the intact smile, the dominant position of the maxillary central incisors, and the art of aesthetic integration of the maxillary incisors in proper proportion with the face and stature, thereby producing pleasing sensations in the observer.
