    Visual planning leads to diastema closure success.

    To achieve successful diastema closures with direct composite, precise planning is needed. This can be achieved by using photographs to analyse the tooth dimensions and visually design the planned restoration.

    • To achieve successful and predictable diastema closures with direct composite, analysis and precise planning is needed. A good way to achieve this is by taking several frontal and lateral photographs to analyse the initial situation and measure the teeth dimensions. The next step is to visually design the planned restoration using the distal aspect of the canines, not the dental midline, as the reference. It is also important to ensure that both central incisors are symmetrical, and the maxillary dental midline is coincident with the facial midline. Case examples show following these steps produces a successful closure with desirable results.
