Teeth with a gap in the front

Gapped Teeth? These Are Your Treatment Options

Gapped teeth can happen naturally or as a result of losing one or more teeth. Although this isn’t harmful to oral health, many people who have gapped teeth turn to cosmetic dentistry to address the problem. Nowadays, there are four treatments that you can choose from.

Partial veneers are a natural-looking solution to gapped teeth. And because they’re made with sturdy ceramic or porcelain, they’re long lasting too. This option may suit you if you have large gaps between your teeth. 

If the gap isn’t too big, you may want to consider dental bonding. This procedure consists of applying custom-made dental resin to both sides of the gap. Although bonding doesn’t offer permanent results, it’s one of the most cost-effective treatments for gapped teeth. In most cases, you can expect dental bonding to stay in place for 5 to 10 years.

The third option involves having a dental bridge or artificial tooth. This option may work if you only have a single tooth missing or if the gap is large enough to have a false tooth fitted in. However, for a dental bridge to work, the teeth to either side of the gap need to be in good condition, as they will be used to support it.

Lastly, you may want to consider orthodontic treatment. This may not offer immediate results like the methods outlined above do, but it may be something to consider if you have other dental issues, such as crooked teeth. Remember that orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to mean wearing metal braces, as there are invisible braces that deliver the same results. Over the course of the treatment, invisible braces will push your teeth together and eventually close the gap between them.
