What Causes a Tooth Gap?
Many patients have a gap in their teeth, and this is actually very common. Tooth gaps or diastema can be genetic, or due to the way your teeth and jaw are aligned. Sometimes thumb sucking when you are a child can cause a tooth gap. Periodontal disease can cause bone loss, and patients may develop gaps in their teeth.
Options To Fill Tooth Gaps
Dental bonding uses composite material that is tooth-colored to fill gaps between teeth. The bonding material can fill the space, and is a good option if you have a small gap. This option is cost effective and little to no prep work is required. The procedure is quick and does not require anesthesia.
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of tooth colored material that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Veneers are stain resistant and are durable. Veneers can fill in a tooth gap, and are a great choice for patients looking for a natural smile. The veneers can be matched to your natural teeth and blend in nicely.
Invisalign is a treatment that uses clear aligners to gently move teeth into place over time. Invisalign has the ability to close gaps in teeth, and is a great alternative to traditional metal braces. The clear trays are removable which makes it easy to drink or eat.
If your tooth is damaged and we are not able to save the tooth, implants may be a great option. Implants can replace your damaged or lost tooth, and give you support for a dental bridge or dentures. Implants preserve your jawbone and reduce bone loss. Dental implants are a permanent solution that is durable and can last a lifetime.
