Background: Maxillary midline diastema is a common esthetic problem that may affect patient’s self-esteem. Many treatment modalities are available for diastema closure from surgery, orthodontics to composite build up, veneers and crowns. The choice depends on the extent of the diastema and the malposition’s associated.
Case Report: A 28-year-old male patient presented with diastema in his upper front teeth associated with important malposition. A preoperative study performed on diagnostic casts led to the choice of partially veneered full coverage zirconia crowns to ensure achieving adequate teeth proportions and gingival levels.
Conclusion: The presence of maxillary midline diastema is a very common esthetic problem. Among a wide array of treatment options, full coverage zirconia crowns are a reliable treatment when remaining enamel is unsufficient to indicate laminate veneers. Partially veneered zirconia crowns ensure high mechanical properties biocompatibility and color stability overtime.
