Dr. Pradnya V. Bansode [7] | Dr. Seema D. Pathak [7] | Dr. M. B Wavdhane [2] | Dr. Sherryla Kazi

Abstract: In today's world, people seeking dental treatments have aesthetics as the major concern. Diastemas are one of the most common forms of malocclusion seen frequently in the midst of the maxillary central incisors. Along with midline diastema, there can be generalized spacing in anterior teeth, especially in the maxillary arch. Correction of multiple diastema without much preparation of the teeth is one of the challenges in clinical esthetic dentistry. Indirect restorative procedures render excellent esthetics; however, these are invasive procedures that lead to the removal of unnecessary tooth structure in order to achieve the desired result. Whenever possible, the most conservative approach is preferred over the invasive procedures. This article presents a case report of esthetic management of maxillary anterior spacing including midline diastema with single - shaded composite resin utilizing direct technique along with the putty index method and supplementary lab procedures.
