In routine dental practice, we come across many patients who present with different contour and forms of residual ridges. These may range from severely resorbed to well-formed bulky ridges. There are certain cases in which the premaxilla is labially inclined, and therefore, there is formation of moderate to severe labial undercut. As a result, fabricating esthetic dentures is a task. In such cases, there are two treatment options, namely, surgical and nonsurgical. Surgical treatments include labial alveoloplasty, which is invasive and we have to wait until healing occurs. Hence, a nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment option for construction of complete denture is desired. The labial flanges need to be modified to decrease the fullness on wearing dentures. Thus, labial denture prosthesis is a good and viable treatment modality.
