Abstract Aim The early loss of permanent teeth following trauma or congenital aplasia may be corrected in young patients by orthodontics and prosthetic-implant means. The aim of the present clinical review is to show how modern restorative options, such as enamel and gingival recontouring, bleaching and composite resin bonding, may improve the final clinical result after orthodontic space closure. Materials and methods The most common problems following orthodontically transposed teeth are unusual function, shape, dimension and color or deficient periodontal integration as a problematic long term maintenance of prosthetically replaced missing teeth, using or not implant supported restorations. This article presents clinical outcomes summarizing the benefists and positive impact of direct composite application to improve esthetics and function following orthodontic space closure. Conclusion There are different decisional levels for the treatment of young patients with missing anterior teeth which should be carefully weighted during treatment planning to satisfy demands regarding tissue conservation, function and esthetics and offer patients the best available solution.
