Midline diastema is one of the common aesthetic concern in late mixed dentiton and permanent dentition. Many contemporary treatment modalities are varying from general restorative procedures like composite build-up, prosthodontic consideration to minor surgical procedure (frenectomy) and orthodontics are available. A high frenum attachment is often the cause of persistent diastemas. A Case Report of a 21-year-old female with a high frenulum attachment which has resulted in spacing of the maxillary central incisors is presented. This case report elaborates the removal of the abnormal labial frenum attachment through surgery and subsequent closure of maxillary diastema following orthodontic treatment use of porcelain laminate veneers(PLV).
