What should you know about closing gaps between teeth?
Gaps or spaces between your teeth are also referred as a diastema. Gaps often appear between the two upper front teeth, which can take away your natural and confident smile. However, you need not feel unhappy about it. Cosmetic dentistry has many ways to close the gap and enhance your smile.
Diastema can be due to unusual spacing between the teeth, small teeth, or because of missing teeth. Habits such as thumb sucking can also lead to gaps between the teeth, pulling the front teeth forward and creating gaps. Whatever the reason may be, it is never too late to have corrective orthodontic treatment. It could be with braces, composite bonding, porcelain veneers or crowns.
Large gaps caused by missing teeth can be closed with tooth replacement by dental implants or bridge-work. Closing these gaps between teeth can optimize your bite and functionality, facilitate easier brushing and flossing – the result – healthy teeth and a confident smile.
Treatment Options – For eliminating gaps between teeth
Depending on various factors – such as the cause, size, and location of the space, the condition of adjacent teeth, your budget and personal needs – your treatment options can vary. From restorative treatments such as composite bonding, porcelain veneers or crowns to filling small gaps, to gaps caused by missing teeth, filled by dental implants or teeth supported bridge work, the treatment can be customized to the individual case and need.
Dental bonding is used to offer a perfect shape to the tooth by filling the spaces. Resin material is used to fill the vacant space with the help of amalgamator to ensure the actual tooth color of the patient is matched. This can be achieved in a single sitting.
Porcelain Veneers: Crowns/veneers are effective in closing large gaps between teeth, to get back your natural smile. The veneers we use depends on the condition and spaces between the teeth. We prefer stain resistant, strong and durable porcelain veneers to Composite veneers.
Orthodontic Options: Modern orthodontic treatment is often used to reposition teeth that are crooked or overcrowded, as well as to close gaps between teeth and correct bite disorders. Some of the most effective options to fix a gap in teeth are braced such as:
• Hidden Braces
• Conventional braces
• ‘Invisible’ braces
• Clear aligners
• Removable aligners
