Bottom Line: If orthodontists and restorative dentists establish the interdisciplinary approach to esthetic dentistry, the esthetic and functional outcome of their combined efforts will be greatly enhanced.This article describes satisfying esthetic results obtained by the distribution of space for restoration by orthodontic treatment and porcelain laminate veneers in uneven space between maxillary anterior teeth.It is proposed that the use of orthodontic treatment for re-distribution of the space and the use of porcelain laminate veneers to alter crown anatomy provide maximum esthetic and functional correction for patients with irregular interdental spacing.

ABSTRACT
If orthodontists and restorative dentists establish the interdisciplinary approach to esthetic dentistry, the esthetic and functional outcome of their combined efforts will be greatly enhanced. This article describes satisfying esthetic results obtained by the distribution of space for restoration by orthodontic treatment and porcelain laminate veneers in uneven space between maxillary anterior teeth. It is proposed that the use of orthodontic treatment for re-distribution of the space and the use of porcelain laminate veneers to alter crown anatomy provide maximum esthetic and functional correction for patients with irregular interdental spacing.

Mentions: A 50-year-old woman visited Seoul National University Dental Hospital, with a chief complaint of "desire to improve esthetics" because of the existing space between anterior maxillary teeth. The patient had uneven space between anterior maxillary teeth and showed deep bite Angle class II malocclusion. The problem list of patient's anterior maxillary part was as followed: asymmetrical zenith lines, abnormal incisal profile with disharmonious tooth axes and imbalances in tooth positions (Fig. 1). The midline was deviated and the maxilla was canted to the right. The proportion of tooth size was asymmetrical and there was wide diastema between central incisors, approximately 2 mm. On the first visit, irreversible hydrocolloid impressions of both maxillary and mandibular arches were taken, and diagnostic wax up was performed. To produce the most esthetic result, recurring esthetic dental (RED) proportion was used to establish the widths of the anterior six teeth as viewed from the frontal.6 The author has defined the RED proportion as the proportion of successive widths of the teeth viewed from the frontal, remaining constant as one moves distally. As it is well known, the golden proportion is limited to 62%, however, the RED proportion gives greater flexibility, as the dentist can define desired RED proportion, and an approximate 70% is preferred. Based on the RED proportion of 70%, diagnostic wax-up was performed, and the favorable results were predicted by space redistribution. If the right central incisor would be moved toward mesial and incisal directions 1 mm respectively, the left lateral incisor would be moved toward incisal direction 1 mm (Fig. 2).
