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.

Dental bonding is another treatment that can help with gapped teeth. The dentist will place a special material that adheres to your teeth and fills your gap. Similarly, as soon as the resin is applied, our dentist will shape and polish it. The color of this resin will be matched to your teeth perfectly, giving you the attractive smile you can be proud of.

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.
