Very few people are lucky enough to have perfect smiles and if you have a gap in your smile, there’s no need to panic. Dentists today have a range of treatments available to close and reduce the size of gaps and create stunning, healthy looking smile. If you have gaps in your smile, here are some of the options you may wish to consider:
Veneers: if you have several gaps in your smile, you have chipped, discoloured or worn teeth or you’re looking for a solution to make your smile look flawless, veneers could be the answer. Veneers are a versatile treatment and they have a reputation for creating truly stunning smiles. These ultra-thin sheets of ceramic, which are shaped to fit the teeth, are fixed onto the natural teeth to transform the aesthetic of the smile. Treatment usually involves 2 sessions around 2 weeks apart.
Braces: if you have a large gap between your teeth or you have several gaps, braces could help. Braces are the only treatment, which will actually physically move the teeth to close the gaps. Nowadays, there are many different treatment options available, including removable braces, fixed braces, invisible options and even braces that are attached to the back of the teeth. Braces use forces to reposition and re-align the teeth, creating straight, healthy looking smiles. If you only have minor issues, treatment times are very short and you may be able to show off the results of your treatment in just 16 weeks.
Composite bonding: composite bonding is a really simple, yet impressive solution, for minor aesthetic ailments, such as chips, worn tooth edges and small spaces between the teeth. This painless procedure, which can usually be completed within an hour, involves shaping and moulding dental composite (a tooth-coloured material, which is also used for white fillings) and setting it to make it firm. Composite can be used to repair and build-up chipped teeth and placed between the teeth to reduce the size of gaps. The results of treatment are visible immediately and you’ll be amazed at the difference treatment can make.
