Concerns and expectations for dental aesthetics are becoming increasingly widespread. Therefore, interdisciplinary treatments for rehabilitation of previous aesthetics have increased, requiring the development of increasingly predictable techniques. The gingival smile and the presence of diastemas in the anterior region are common characteristics in the population, being considered unpleasant during the smile, negatively affecting facial aesthetics. The objective of this article was to report the previous aesthetic rehabilitation using a surgical guide for the correction of gingival smile and restorative finishing with composite resin. A 48-year-old patient attended the dental clinic with aesthetic dissatisfaction smiling. Clinical examination revealed the presence of an altered passive eruption and diastemas in the anterosuperior region. The aesthetic rehabilitation took place by surgery to increase the aesthetic clinical crown with the use of a surgical silicone guide, and subsequent restorative treatment with composite resins. After 1 year of follow-up, periodontal tissue stability and restorations could be verified. The combination of periodontal and restorative treatment has been shown to be effective in previous aesthetic rehabilitation, therefore the use of periodontal surgical guide with subsequent restorative treatment can be an alternative to increase the predictability of rehabilitation in aesthetic regions.
