The term ‘diastema’ is used to describe the spaces between the upper front teeth. Diastemas are created by a disproportionate sizes of teeth and jaw.
Small and unattractive teeth go hand in hand with open spaces. The smile looks “timid”. The treatment of choice would be to increase the size of the teeth by placing veneers on top of them closing the diastemas at the same time. The ensuing smile is more vivid and healthy. The teeth appear whiter and more appealing. This is the task of cosmetic dentistry.
