Space closure in the maxillary anterior segment using direct composite is one of the most challenging esthetic procedures. The challenge lies in determining and achieving the correct dimensions. Various mathematical principles that have been observed in esthetically pleasing smiles can be applied to simplify the procedure and achieve symmetry while treating spaced dentition. The aim was to devise a technique for simplifying the application of mathematical principles in esthetic dentistry and improve the predictability and accuracy of the procedure of space closure using direct composite.
