Case Synopsis A 29-year-old Caucasian female presented with congenitally missing teeth #6 and 10 with horizontal impaction of tooth #11. Consequently, her upper arch width was constricted and deficient due to the lack of the development and eruption of the permanent teeth. The patient had ‘cosmetic’ bonding in an effort to create a pleasing outcome, but failed due to the lack of objective instrumentation to help guide the dentist in treatment. Chu’s Aesthetic Gauges, which define ranges of individual tooth size, was used to create the proper individual tooth proportion based upon width once the

incisal edge position was established. The maxillary central incisors for this patient were found to be slightly deficient in length. The aesthetic restorative therapy entailed correction of tooth dimensions of all the maxillary anterior teeth through crown lengthening using the gauges as a guide for reconstruction of size and shape with ceramic laminate veneers as well as full crowns on teeth and implants. The centrals were corrected first, then the canines for occlusion, and then the lateral incisors. With Chu’s Aesthetic Gauges, predictable and swift diagnosis and correction can be accomplished with a minimum amount of stress and a maximum amount of patient gratification. 1
