Midline diastema is one of the common
aesthetic concern in late mixed dentiton and permanent
dentition. Many contemporary treatment modalities are
varying from general restorative procedures like
composite build-up, prosthodontic consideration to
minor surgical procedure (frenectomy) and
orthodontics are available. A high frenum attachment is
often the cause of persistent diastemas. A Case Report
of a 21-year-old female with a high frenulum
attachment which has resulted in spacing of the
maxillary central incisors is presented. This case report
elaborates the removal of the abnormal labial frenum
attachment through surgery and subsequent closure of
maxillary diastema following orthodontic treatment use
of porcelain laminate veneers(PLV).
