The treatment of diastemas should be conservative to preserve tooth structure, and porcelain veneers provide an esthetic solution with minimal tooth preparation. However, asymmetric diastemas can be difficult to treat and may require redistribution of spaces. Additionally, extensive proximal restorations may negatively impact periodontal health. Minor tooth movement with elastic separators can be used to redistribute the interdental spaces and provide space for the interdental papilla. The aim of this paper was to present a clinical treatment involving the movement of peg-shaped maxillary lateral incisors with elastic separators to rearrange the spaces of asymmetric diastemas, thereby managing the horizontal distance during rehabilitation of the smile with minimally invasive ceramic veneers.
