    Background: There are certain esthetic algorithms in nature like the Fibonacci sequence and the closely related golden proportion. In dentistry, the golden proportion has been suggested as one possible mathematical approach to the development of ideal size and shape relationships for maxillary teeth. Although several studies are available regarding the measurement of golden proportion in Caucasian populations, we do not have enough data regarding golden proportion measurements in the South Indian population. This survey is a small step toward addressing this gap in the literature. Aim: This study aims to survey the incidence of golden proportion between the widths of the maxillary anterior teeth among a target South Indian population. Materials and Methods: The study included 100 patients, 50 male and 50 female patients of age group of 20–30 years. Digital camera was used to measure the widths of the maxillary anterior teeth: Central incisor, lateral incisor, and canine. Standard frontal image of subject’s smile was taken using Canon 550 AF Lens 18–55mm. The image was downloaded to a personal computer and measurements of maxillary and mandibular anteriors were measured using a software called image measurement. Results: In the present study male South Indian population, the central incisor is smaller when compared to the ideal golden proportion, whereas canine is larger. The ratio of 1.2 was more commonly observed in 89% of individuals than 1.618 and 1.3 only in 11% of samples. Conclusion: The proportion between the maxillary central incisor, lateral incisor, and canine is consistent in both males and females. The central incisor is slightly smaller and canine is larger than the ideal golden proportion.
