Introduction: Aesthetic dentistry is dental treatments which tend to make one’s face or teeth more beautiful and pleasing to the eyes in appearance. It can be as simple as replacing discolored or cracked restorations with a natural looking one. It focuses on improving the overall smile appearance and the confidence of a person. Materials and Methods: The data was collected from Digital Information Archiving Software (DIAS) of Saveetha Dental College. The data was collected from November 2020 to January 2021. The data included patients who had undergone aesthetic restoration. The data was tabulated and entered in excel and the data was analysed using SPSS package software. p<0.05 was considered to be the level of statistical significance in the study. Results: From this study we have found that males of age 18 to 35 are more prone to get aesthetic correction of their teeth, p<0.05. Conclusion: Within the limitations of the study, we have found that patients are more willing and are conscious of their anterior teeth than their posterior teeth and the younger age group is more concerned about their dental aesthetic.
