Full Dentures represents the classic therapeutic solution for complete edentulous patients, due to their advantages. The choice of the optimal therapeutic solution must be based on a correct and complete clinical and complementary examination. The difficulties of choosing a therapeutic strategy consist in finding a balance in satisfying the patient’s requirements and the objective demands of the individuality of the oral cavity. The aim of this article is to present a clinical case that illustrates the technology of restoring the physiognomic function of a total edentulous case by rendering the aesthetic aspect of artificial gum, for a complete maxillary denture. The polychromy method is a technique that consists of the superimposition of different shades of colors in order to restore the most natural appearance of artificial gingiva. This method allows obtaining prostheses with a better aesthetic appearance, comparing to the classical ones.
