The coordinated management of gingival and esthetic problems is important in dentistry. In addition, the most difficult variable to control in the treatment of anterior esthetics is the soft tissue. This article discusses the relationship between the surrounding soft tissue and the emerging crown form. The authors introduce a soft-tissue index model technique that will help the technician in fabricating the final crown with a form similar to the provisional. In this case report, provisional crowns are fabricated with enough tissue support to provide for an optimal crown-gingival interface. The present case demonstrates how to manage the gingival margin in the provisional stage and how to transfer the provisional and soft tissue to the laboratory model.
