Your Options for Gapped Teeth

Does that gap between your two front teeth make it hard for you to smile? It is hard to look at your mouth in the mirror? Do you ever wonder what you can do to get the gap closed? Fortunately, you have a few options available. But did you know that perfecting your smile will improve your confidence, and your oral health will also benefit?

One treatment you may want to consider is dental veneers. Veneers are thin shells that can be fused to your teeth to correct imperfections in your smile, such as closing gaps and covering misshapen teeth. Veneers are custom made to fit your mouth, meaning they also feel natural and are comfortable. Veneers are also very sturdy, able to last for ten or more years with proper care.

A treatment known as dental bonding may also be using. Typically, our dentist will place this special material on more teeth in order to fill gaps in your smile. Fortunately, this bonding resin can be matched to the color of your teeth.

Finally, if you have a gap because of a missing tooth, our dentist may fill the space with a crown or a bridge. Both of these restoration options look and feel like natural teeth and are custom made to fit your smile. Similarly, if your gap is caused by misaligned teeth, you may want to consider using braces.
