Posted on 6/20/2018 by Posh Dental
Having a great smile is a goal most people have and can boost your confidence. When you have gaps between your teeth, this can make you self-conscious and make you stop smiling, but spacing issues are fixable with the right types of treatment.
Whether you have lost some teeth due to decay or because they have been extracted, the space left in between the teeth can make other pieces shift and look crooked. Here are some ways in which we can help you have that perfect smile that you have always dreamed about.
Bridges or Crowns
A treatment solution with crowns or bridges can sometimes be invasive and require anesthesia, our dentist can recommend either one depending on your situation. During this process, your tooth is extended from its center to fill the gaps on either side.
This is the preferred method for patients because veneers are less invasive than bridges and crowns. In order to treat spacing issues with veneers, the dentist will use composite, as it can be made to match the exact shade of your natural teeth.
Almost every teenager you know has or has had braces in the past. It seems the use of braces has increased exponentially in the U.S., where people are more concerned about having a perfect smile.
While this is an effective treatment for spacing issues, it can be expensive, and most insurance companies only cover a minimal amount of the cost. In recent years, invisible braces have become extremely popular, but they are also more expensive than the standard type.
If you have always been uncomfortable smiling widely because you have gaps between your teeth, spacing issues are fixable with the right types of treatment. Please ask our staff to discuss your options at your next check-up.
