Do you have an embarrassing space between your teeth that you want to get rid of? If so, you’ll be delighted to learn that several simple solutions are available to fix this problem! If the space between your teeth is small, you may opt for a dental veneer. Not only is this option esthetically pleasing, it is also one of the most affordable. A veneer is a wafer-thin porcelain shell that bonds to the front of the tooth, improving its shape, appearance or colour. For tooth gaps (a wide space between two teeth), the veneer is shaped slightly wider than the tooth to fill the gap you want to hide.
If the space between your two teeth is large, orthodontic treatment may be advised. Fortunately, an alternative now exists to braces, i.e., translucent, removable orthodontic trays. As the name implies, this device is made of almost invisible plastic that exerts much less pressure on your teeth, causing them to move more gently and therefore painlessly. Trays are also extremely practical since you can remove them as you like, for example, when brushing or eating meals.
If you think you might want to correct a gap between two or more teeth, please ask your dentist about the solution best suited to you.
