Periodontal disease may lead to gingival recession causing elongated clinical crown height and formation of black triangle in the interproximal area. Acrylic gingival prosthesis is a noninvasive, economical restorative procedure to artificially replace the lost gingival tissue. This artificial prosthesis overcomes the pitfall of extensive surgical corrective procedure. This article aims to describe a clinical case with advanced gingival recession with diastema between the upper anterior teeth, which was esthetically rehabilitated with acrylic gingival veneer prosthesis.
