The desire for an esthetic smile has been increasingly the reason why patients seek for dental treatment. Within this context, the Dentistry has adopted a multidisciplinary approach for esthetic and functional rehabilitation of the smile. The purpose of this paper was to present a clinical case solved through teamwork involving Dentistry and Orthodontics. The patient complained of the appearance of her smile. From a careful analysis of the patient's dentofacial characteristics, a restorative-orthodontic treatment was planned. The Orthodontics was responsible for leveling the arches, correction of gingival zenith and occlusal plane, and dental alignment in order to distribute the orthodontic spaces. The restorative approach consisted of removing the unsatisfactory restorations and procedures for closure of the diastemas and cosmetic recontour of the anterior teeth with composite resin, restoring principles such as size and shape, smile line, incisal edges and proportionality. This case reflects the importance of an integrated treatment allowing a minimally invasive restorative approach in the esthetic and functional rehabilitation of a patient with multiples diastemas.
