Diastema closure with porcelain veneers – Mauro ́s Story

Esthetic dentistry - diastema closure

Define your goals before you design a CURE

Maxillary interincisor diastema may interfere with the patient’s personal esthetic imagination by compromising the dentofacial harmony and may also provoke dyslalia.

Midline diastema is frequently reported as a malocclusion.

To start with, an orthodontic diastema closure treatment seems to be the perfect solution. However, long-term stability is in general very difficult to achieve in the anterior region. More importantly, it frequently causes the problem of a relapse incidence after orthodontic treatment.

There are also some additional problems the patient is unlikely aware of prior to the orthodontic treatment. These relate to the use of a retainer throughout a patient’s lifetime, which is recommended by the orthodontist.

The retainer can cause:

  • Hygiene Proplems (Caries)
  • Periodontal Problems 
  • Discomfort
  • Phonetic Problems

Owing to the fact that a midline diastema is easily visible, anterior spaces are one of the most important reasons why patients look for long-lasting stable treatment outcomes. With this intention, we demonstrate a restorative dentistry training video to describe a patient type and energy oriented therapeutic mock-up for a diastema closure treatment with porcelain veneers.

It is not art to make what the patient is asking for. It is art to make what the patient really wants!

Pleasure must be developed while studying the Patient.

Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others. – Jonathan Swift

We always test all your ideas (vision) first in one or multiple mock-up’s before we make any material or preparation decisions.

„The patient creates the restoration“ is our philosophy. We assist with idea’s, science and abstract presentations. This will create an innovative knowledge for the patient-oriented esthetic dental restoration.

This slide presents the red line in a patient oriented planning with type analysis and patient energy analysis.

Patients should be properly evaluated, correctly diagnosed, and carefully monitored, especially regarding the etiology of a tooth/teeth should be considered. When the esthetic and or functional consequences affect a patient’s quality of life, use of a wax-up and mock-up to guide the treatment steps ensures the application of a minimally invasive approach and the achievement of a predictable and satisfactory result.

“Emotions and beliefs are masters, reason their servant. Ignore emotion, and reason slumbers; trigger emotion, and reason comes rushing to help.”– Henry M. Boettinger
