You have a space between a couple of front teeth that has bothered you for years. You aren’t interested in having a bunch of metal brackets and wires placed on your teeth. What are your options for closing up the gap and enhancing your smile?
Invisalign: The Removable Braces
Invisalign orthodontics involve wearing a series of clear custom-fitted, removable, graduated trays. These trays are hardly noticeable to others who don’t know they are there, and they are much more comfortable than wearing full metal braces. Invisalign allows you to make orthodontic changes in your smile without disrupting your everyday routine. Ask us more about the procedure if you are interested in wire-free teeth-straightening options.
Fast and Effective Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is completed without anesthesia and without removing much tooth structure. The tooth our dentist decides to bond will be slightly roughened and then conditioned with a special liquid. A dental bonding material of a pre-selected shade that best matches your natural teeth is carefully molded by your dentist to improve the shape of one or more teeth. The bond is sealed with a special light, and your gap is closed off in a matter of minutes.
A Glamorous Veneer
Veneers are porcelain or composite resin shells that are cemented over the front of a prepared tooth. Veneers are custom made by a lab after an impression is taken of the prepared tooth or teeth. The veneer itself is shaped to improve the appearance of a tooth, making it a great option for enhancing your smile by closing off a gap.
Schedule a consultation with your dentist to discuss what options for fixing a gap are right for you.
