Closing a space between teeth can have a positive effect on your smile by making it appear more symmetrical, and by closing a gap that can draw undesired attention. While you may assume that closing a gap will require orthodontic work, this is not always the case. It may be possible to have a space between teeth covered through cosmetic dental work. Your Prairie Village, KS dentist can talk to you about closing a smile gap through cosmetic work, and help you understand what the treatment might involve. If orthodontic work is recommended for you, we can recommend treatment with SureSmile Clear Aligners, which can produce results in less time than other orthodontic appliances.
Why Do You Have A Gap Between Teeth?
While a gap between teeth often occurs due to alignment or spacing problems, this is not always the case. If you have an undersized tooth, it may leave a small amount of space between it and its neighbor, causing the presence of empty space. For case like this, cosmetic dental work can be an effective and convenient solution. Cosmetic treatment can also be effective when alignment problems are relatively minor.
Arranging Cosmetic Dental Work To Cover A Gap Between Teeth
More than one procedure is able to help patients close a gap between teeth. By designing and placing custom porcelain veneers, we may be able to hide any gaps or overlaps that currently hurt your smile. Veneers are carefully designed for each patient, and their shape and size can help with the quality of your smile by hiding any visible flaws. You can also discuss a tooth bonding procedure to add size to a tooth and close a gap between it and its neighbor. If the tooth in question is undersized to the point that it affects the way you bite, we may suggest having it restored with a dental crown.
