3 Treatments That Can Hide A Gap Between Teeth

man holding up 3 fingersEven if it is relatively narrow, a visible gap in your smile can be a source of real concern. This is a problem that is often caused by malocclusion, or poor dental alignment, though space can also be present when you have an undersized tooth. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office can work with you on finding a solution to the problem that makes you comfortable with the way you look. One option is to plan orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. However, for some people, including those who have issues with undersized teeth, other cosmetic services can work, too. Because we offer complimentary cosmetic consultations, we can make an appointment to discuss care easier to arrange!

1. Closing Gaps And Correcting Overlaps With Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign aligners help people fix gaps, overlaps, and other problems linked to malocclusion without the use of conspicuous metal braces. The treatment approach we take relies on a series of appliances, with each one carefully designed to provide desired corrective movements. Because we maintain digital imaging technology in our office for use in measuring teeth and planning adjustments, we can create precise aligners for you to use. At the end of your adjustment, you can show off a straighter, more symmetrical smile and put worries around spacing issues behind you!

2. Addressing A Conspicuous Gap With Porcelain Veneers

It may be possible to hide a gap between teeth by performing cosmetic dental work that changes the shape or size of teeth. With porcelain veneers, we can make these corrections to hide any visible flaws that make you unhappy with your appearance. Veneers are thin shells that are custom-made to fit over teeth. Their durable design makes it easier for patients to preserve their esthetic improvements for many years.

3. Using Tooth Bonding Treatment To Close An Unsightly Gap

A tooth bonding procedure can change the shape, size, or color of a tooth without the need to cap it with a restoration. Because there is no need for a restoration, we may be able to complete your procedure in as little as one appointment. This procedure relies on a composite resin substance that we directly apply to your enamel. By administering it properly, we can restore your appearance by hiding conspicuous flaws and making other desirable changes to the way you look.
