Do you feel self-conscious about your teeth? Does this force you to avoid smiling? If so, others can mistake your expression for unfriendliness or anger. Gaps in your teeth can make you self-conscious.
Luckily, dentists can treat gaps and make your smile more beautiful.
One way to eliminate the appearance of gaps in your teeth is through veneers. Veneers are made of thin porcelain and are attached to the outside surface of the tooth. They can cover up cosmetic issues, such as pitted, stained or gapped teeth. Veneers are excellent because they are resistant to staining, durable and long-lasting.
Another treatment method is called dental bonding. Dentists apply a small amount of composite resin to the area of the gap, sculpting it to fit perfectly and look natural. Dental bonding works quicker than veneers. Veneers can take weeks to finish, while bonding can be done in a short office visit. This is more convenient for people who need something quickly for an event or wedding.
