Maxillary midline (major) diastemas, which are common aesthetic problems for the patients may frequently occur due to high frenulum junctions. Direct prepless composite resin restorations can be economical and successful after the treatment of abnormal frenum. The present paper reports a case of maxillary major diastema due to high frenulum, which was treated with non-invasively direct composite resin restorations after frenectomy and office bleaching procedures. The success of the final restorations were assessed in 3 month, 9 month and 18 month follow ups.
