A gap between teeth may look odd, especially when it is in an adult’s teeth. There are various reasons for gaps and may include a mismatch of the size of the jaw and teeth, crowded mouth, or missing or undersized teeth. Gaps once developed last for a lifetime. But the good news is that there are various ways to fix the gap between teeth. The procedure and treatment depend on the size of the gap, the time over which you would like it to close, and your budget.
The most common and most used procedure is braces. These align all the teeth no matter where the gap may be. With pressure, the braces pull the teeth close to each other.
Invisalign act and serve the same purpose as braces, but these are invisible and are effective in less severe gaps. The best part of using Invisalign is that no one gets to know that you are wearing one.
Implants are used successfully in the case of tooth extraction, and an artificial tooth is to be inserted in the place of the extracted tooth. It is also useful when the gap is as wide as an entire tooth. It has a high success rate and lasts for a lifetime.
Bonding is applying of resin to teeth to treat broken or chipped teeth, but it can also be effective for covering gaps between teeth. This is a quick fix as it dries up within a few hours but does not last long.
Veneers are extremely thin shells that cover the teeth. For veneers, a dentist removes a very thin layer of enamel and bonds the veneers to the teeth.
