Abstract: In this investigation, photographs of natural and exaggerated smiles of 527 Saudi subjects (285 males and 242 females) were made. Data obtained from the photographs regarding anterior tooth visibility was analyzed. The results revealed that a substantial percentage of the subjects do not show the gingival section of their anterior teeth during natural smile (maxillary teeth 43.5 - 69.8% and mandibular 93.7 - 97.9%). In case of exaggerated smile, the percentage for maxillary anterior teeth, where the gingival section do not show, was 22.7% -39.3% and that for mandibular anterior teeth was 54.1% - 72.1 %. Comparison between male and female in respect to anterior tooth visibility revealed that there is no statistically significant difference.
