Abstract

Proclination of maxillary incisors is considered as the main manifestations of pathological migration. Diastema is defined as no proximal contacts between adjacent teeth. Dentofacial discrepancies negatively affect the speech, masticatory function and aesthetics. Where orthodontic and surgical treatments can not be applied, it is inevitable to carry out the restorative treatments to accomplish the function and the aesthetics. With adequate diagnosis and treatment planning, it is possible to recreate a healthy and well functioning dentition with good occlusion, sufficient masticatory function, and improved esthetics that will enhance the psychological status of the patient after correcting the elongation and the migration of the anterior teeth.

Keywords: Aesthetics, Fixed Partial Denture, Monolothic zirconia, Midline Diastema, Pathological migration.
