ABSTRACT:The crown lengthening procedure (CLP) is commonly used to maintain the dentogingival complex in optimal conditions and to correct aesthetic defects through a smile design. The purpose of this article was to describe a CLP using aesthetic measurement gauges in a 40-year-old female patient who was referred to the Department of Advanced Dentistry of Nuevo Leon Autonomous University. During clinical inspection, an asymmetric gingival contour in both upper central incisors was diagnosed. A successful CLP was performed using aesthetic measurement gauges; the optimal dimension of clinical crowns, symmetrical gingival contour and adequate osseous level was obtained with this technique.
