on the surface, closing a space may seem relatively simple. in this case, the space was wide enough, that closing it could have a negative impact on the size of the tooth's appearance. in other words, they may look too large. this could be masked by contouring certain elements of the tooth's anatomy, which i decided to do here. it all starts with measuring the space, and splitting the difference.
i made the measurement, added composite to one side to close half the space, and repeated on the other side. i also added composite to the patient's right canine and made some minor aesthetic adjustments through recontouring. as you can see, the result appears very natural and the patient was very happy with the outcome.
