This paper presents a method for measuring gingival volume through the analysis of the tooth crown area of anterior teeth using digital photographs and computer analysis. Three photographs were taken and manipulated to simulate gingival overgrowth to perform a numeric correlation of change in gingival volume. The proposed method is easy, noninvasive, and provides rich data for statistical analysis or clinical classification of the gingival condition. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2012;32:591–596.)
