Abstract

Diastema, or gaps in the front teeth, is unsightly and can have a detrimental effect on an individual's self-confidence and ability to make professional connections in social and professional settings. Therefore, examining the patient's wants, desires, and aesthetic concerns is important to evaluate the treatment plan to get optimal results. Modern eons have seen an upsurge in the need for interdisciplinary relationship between orthodontics, restorative dentistry, and periodontology to achieve an effective treatment plan and consequence. The black triangle (gingival embrasure without papilla), which occurs when a diastema is closed directly, is a major issue in aesthetic dentistry. The black triangle will ruin the patients' smiles; therefore, it is best to avoid it. The composite mastic used to seal diastemas should have sufficient convexity in the gingivo-incisal direction to prevent this issue. Closing a diastema can be done in several ways, some of which take a long time or do not give a good contour.
