Any of the reasons listed above can contribute to your gapped teeth.
To Keep or Not to Keep?
Aside from the aesthetics of your smile, there is really no reason to get rid of your gapped teeth. However, if your gapped teeth are causing misalignment issues or affecting the health of your teeth or gums in any way, we highly recommend fixing it. If you’re not sure if your gap is causing other problems, our dentists will offer their expert opinion during a consultation. If you do decide that your gap makes you dislike your smile or it’s causing health problems, we will go over the different treatment options to choose from.
Cosmetic Dentistry That Can Fix Your Gapped Teeth
If you’re ready to close in your gapped teeth, you’re in luck because we offer lots of different treatments that can help. If you don’t have any alignment issues and want immediate results, we recommend dental bonding or porcelain veneers. Both bonding and veneers will change the shape of your teeth to close in the gaps after one to two appointments. The only downside is that you will need to replace the bonding and the veneers repeatedly throughout your life to maintain your results.
On the flip side, if you need to fix your alignment and want more permanent results, we will recommend orthodontics for your gapped teeth. The results will just take longer to achieve. However, once you finish your orthodontic treatment, as long as you wear your retainer per our recommendation, you can expect to have a gap-free smile for the rest of your life.
