As you may already know, enjoying a beautiful and healthy smile is something most people would like. Luckily, there are many different treatment options you can consider if you want to improve the appearance of your pearly whites. However, do you know what you can you do about a gap in your mouth?

Of course, you’ll need to consider the size of the gap in your teeth in order to choose the best treatment for your circumstances. If you do have a large gap in your mouth caused by a missing tooth, there are several restoration options that can meet your needs. For instance, a bridge, implant, or dentures could be used to replace your missing teeth. In fact, all of these options will restore your ability to speak and chew comfortably.

Conversely, if the gap in your teeth is small, our team could recommend dental veneers to address your imperfections. As you may also know, veneers are thin shells made to match your natural teeth and your smile. Our dentist will fuse the veneers to your teeth, which makes them far more durable.

Another option you may consider for gapped teeth is called dental bonding. Dental bonding is very useful because it is made to match the color of your teeth and is affordable. If you choose dental bonding, a composite resin will be used to cover small imperfections, including gaps in your teeth.
