The composition of smile architecture includes pink gingiva and white tooth structure which gives an esthetic appearance. As age advances, gingival recession is seen which contributes to dentinal hypersensitivity and unsightly smile esthetics. Due to this, increasing number of patients are seeking dentists for the absence of pink-colored gingiva. Pink composites are gingival-colored composites that help to create a life-like tooth easily by reconstructing the red-white boundary with superior esthetics. This material provides long-lasting, high esthetic restorations with low abrasive values and high compressive and transverse strength. This shares a case report on how pink composites help in reconstructing the red-white boundary.
