Treatment Options

Several treatment options were discussed with the patient:
  • Orthodontic Treatment with Braces: This option involved correcting the spacing and diastema using traditional orthodontic braces. However, due to the patient’s impending wedding in a few weeks, the time constraint posed an issue, as orthodontic treatment typically requires a minimum of one year for optimal results.
  • Clear Aligners: Clear aligners were suggested as an alternative to braces. However, the patient expressed concerns about the cost associated with this treatment option.
  • E-max Veneer: Another option considered was E-max veneers to enhance the aesthetics of the teeth. However, the patient was apprehensive about the cost similar to clear aligners.
  • Zirconia Crown: The patient chose the option of zirconia crowns for his upper four teeth due to the relatively shorter treatment time and budget-friendliness. Zirconia crowns are known for their durability and aesthetic appeal.

Treatment Plan

After discussing the pros and cons of each treatment option and considering the patient’s preferences and timeline, it was decided to place zirconia crowns on the upper four teeth to address the diastema and spacing.


  • Preparation: The affected teeth were prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel to accommodate the zirconia crowns.
  • Impressions: Impressions were taken to create accurate molds for fabricating the zirconia crowns.
  • Temporary Crowns: Temporary crowns were placed to protect the prepared teeth while the permanent zirconia crowns were being fabricated.
  • Crown Placement: Once the zirconia crowns were ready, they were placed on the prepared teeth using dental adhesive.


The zirconia crowns successfully closed the midline diastema and corrected the spacing between the central and lateral incisors. The patient’s smile aesthetics were improved, enhancing his self-confidence.


Regular follow-up appointments were scheduled to monitor the condition of the zirconia crowns and ensure their stability and function.


This case demonstrates the successful treatment of a midline diastema and spacing using zirconia crowns. The patient’s preference for a timely and cost-effective solution was considered, resulting in an improved smile and enhanced aesthetics.
