New AACD Whitepaper Gives Advice on Closing a Diastema

Posted on Wednesday, October 9, 2013


Madison, WI (PRWEB) May 24, 2012 -- Diastema closure is the topic of the newest free whitepaper from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). The whitepaper, “Six Steps to Consider When Closing Diastemas,” focuses on the challenge many clinicians are faced with—closing a diastema esthetically, and without the presence of black triangles.

Dr. Marcos Vargas, a professor at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, who authored the paper, believes that freehand direct resins composites provide an esthetic and conservative approach to closing diastemas and should be considered by cosmetic dentists.

The whitepaper summarizes the technique demonstrated by Vargas, originally published in Volume 26, No. 3, Fall 2010 issue of the AACD’s Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry.
