Restoring anterior guidance in prosthetic rehabilitation should involve both esthetics and function. In fact, the functional aspect must represent the starting point for achieving optimal esthetics.

A correct anterior guidance should be comfortable, functional and stable, even without posterior teeth contact.

The anterior guide table is a device used for transferring the unique features of a specific anterior guidance developed in provisional restorations to the final restorations.

The purpose of this article was to describe a technique used for the construction of a customized incisal guide.
