Keywords: maxillary anterior teeth | tooth crown proportion | Golden proportion | hard palate proportion | 75% proportion

Aim To examine width-to-length and tooth-to-tooth width ratiosof maxillary anterior teeth and to compare the obtained proportionswith the width-to-length ratio of the hard palate, the GoldenProportion and the 75 % Proportion.Methods The widths and the lengths of the clinical crowns of themaxillary anterior teeth were measured. Hard palate width andlength were measured. Width-to-length ratio of the hard palatewas calculated, as well as width-to-length ratios of the maxillaryanterior teeth. Further, tooth-to-tooth width ratios were calculatedfor all maxillary anterior teeth.Results Comparison between width-to-length ratios of the maxillaryanterior teeth and the 75 % Proportion, the Golden Proportionand the proportion of hard palate revealed statistically significantdifferences (p
