Abstract

Anterior multiple diastema is a problem when the objective is harmonic an smile. Composite resin direct adhesive restorations provide satisfactory esthetic and function with minimum wear of the dental structures. The treatment success depends mainly on good patient oral health, correct diagnosis and technique. This article describes the step by step of an multiple anterior diastema restoration by using composite resin to mimic the enamel and dentin, improving the smile's esthetic. This 13-year follow up shows imperceptible restorations that maintain the natural reproduction of the dental structures over the long term.
