Do you have a gap in your teeth? Are you interested in closing it? If so, you may want to consider your cosmetic dental treatments. While this can help your confidence, it can also improve your oral health.

One treatment you may want to consider is dental veneers. Veneers are thin shells that can be fused to your teeth to correct imperfections in your smile, such as closing gaps and covering misshapen teeth. Veneers are custom made to fit your mouth, meaning they also feel natural and are comfortable. Veneers are also very sturdy, able to last for ten or more years with proper care.

Similarly, our dentist may decide dental bonding is best for you. If you choose this treatment, a special material, known as resin, will be bonded to your teeth. This material adheres to your teeth, meaning it can be used to fill imperfections, such as your gap. Our dentist will be able to match the resin to the color of your teeth, giving you the natural-looking smile you need.

Finally, if you have a gap because of a missing tooth, our dentist may fill the space with a crown or a bridge. Both of these restoration options look and feel like natural teeth and are custom made to fit your smile. Similarly, if your gap is caused by misaligned teeth, you may want to consider using braces.
