    Background: Harmonizing tooth shade with the skin tone has been considered important to enhance facial esthetics. Differences in the perception of desirable dental shade among patients and professionals and between subjects of different ages, with younger subjects indicating a clear preference for whiter teeth, have been a misconception for years. The aim of the study is to evaluate the perception of Indian undergraduate students about the correlation between the skin color and the tooth shade. Aim: This study is an attempt to try and survey the perception of Indian undergraduate students about the correlation between the skin color and tooth shade. Materials and Methods: A pictorial questionnaire study, a single image of an esthetic smile which was edited using Adobe Photoshop, was shown to 100 subjects belonging to the age group of 20– 21 years studying in Saveetha Dental College. Results: It was noted that extreme variation in the skin tone and tooth shade was not preferred. An average tooth shade and skin tone was preferred by the students. Conclusion: It may be appropriate to conclude that facial skin color does not significantly correlate with tooth color. However, further research is needed in this field.
