Your Options For Addressing A Gap Between Teeth

Are your teeth aligned properly, or do you have frustrating issues with smile gaps or overlaps that affect your appearance? For many people with malocclusion, the presence of a noticeable gap can cause discomfort, as this flaw can seem to dominate your smile. Fortunately, there are different treatment options available for those who are bothered by this issue. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we are ready to help you by offering treatment with Invisalign aligners. This treatment will rely on a series of clear appliances that gradually shift teeth so that they are no longer out of position. In addition to closing a smile gap, this can help straighten teeth that overlap, and adjust any teeth that appear to have shifted or recessed.

People Often Feel Self-Conscious About Smile Gaps

Smile gaps occur when teeth are too far apart, or when a tooth is undersized. Gaps can bother people because they draw unwanted attention, and because they are a sign that a person’s smile is not as well aligned as it should be. By bringing your concerns about a cosmetic flaw to your dentist’s attention, you can learn what Invisalign treatment can do to put this problem behind you. You can also discuss other cosmetic dental services that may be appropriate for fixing the way you look.

Closing A Gap Through Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign treatment depends on a series of custom-made aligners that will steadily move your teeth into position in order to address embarrassing flaws. Before we provide your Invisalign appliances, we will use advanced imaging technology to digitally measure your teeth so that we can determine the right size and shape of your aligners, and plan your corrective treatment. Once they are designed and ready for you, your dentist will hand over the set of Invisalign appliances and offer guidance on starting treatment. You should be sure to wear your aligners throughout the day to avoid delays in treatment, but you are free to remove them so that they are not in the way when you clean your teeth, or whenever you eat.

Arranging The Placement Of Veneers To Cover A Smile Gap

Because we can sometimes hide alignment flaws with other cosmetic dental treatments, there may be a way to close your smile gap in less time than you expect. By placing porcelain veneers on your teeth, we can add size to small teeth, cover a gap caused by malocclusion, and even correct problems with their condition or color. Veneers are made with a porcelain material that can withstand pressure when you bite and chew, so this can be an effective long-term solution for your troubles.
