To restore the teeth with sound periodontium biologic width is of utmost importance. In case of biologic width violation gingiva presents with severe inflammation which if not controlled can progress to destruction of supporting structures. These two case reports highlight the importance of biologic width. In first case crown lengthening is performed by two different modalities to respect the same whereas, second case depicts the consequence of violation in post-prosthetic phase which was later rectified by periodontal intervention. In both the case fixed partial dentures were planned for the patient. After successful periodontal intervention restorative margins could be safely placed without disturbing biologic width. Prosthesis was fabricated and anterior region was successfully rehabilitated. Follow up depicts stable periodontium with restoration of aesthetics and function.
