Mentions: The teeth were isolated, acid etched with 35% phosphoric acid (3M ESPE Dental Products USA) for 15 seconds and blot dried. Bonding agent (Adper Single Bond 2 3M ESPE Dental Products USA) was applied and light cured, according to the manufacturer's instructions. Incremental composite resin (3M ESPE Dental Products USA) build up was done for the coronal tooth structure, to close the diastema. Ceramic tint powder (Number 703 and 704, Vita GmbH and Co.KG Germany) was taken in a well, to match the shade of the gingiva. One to two drops of dentin bonding agent was added to dissolve the ceramic tint in it. Composite resin material of selected shade was added to the mixture, till a thick paste consistency was achieved. The gingiva was built up to the proper contour, without any overhang of material. The material was then light cured. Finishing polishing was done using composite finishing and polishing system (Enhance Dentsply Caulk Dentsply International Inc. Milford). A fiber composite splint was placed for two months, from canine to canine, for stabilizing the teeth to reduce the mobility [Figure 1B-Post-treatment].
