Abstract: In the diagnosis of the agenesis of the lateral incisors, it is essential a good clinical examination and a proper x-ray image, which will define not only the agenesis of the teeth, but it will rule out any other anomalies that can be associated with this condition. When we make plan for the treatment, whether we use opening or closing the space, we need to take in consideration the aesthetic, skeletal, dental, periodontal and functional factors. There are clinical cases in which the residual space is minimal and the patient is satisfied with the aesthetic look. In other cases, the patients are not completely satisfied with the aesthetics of their teeth, but due to the price and the time consuming therapy, they do not undergo the procedure. The resolution to this problem should be multidisciplinary. Any type of experimenting may lead to mistake and it will compromise the final look.
