“Diastema” is the term used to describe a gap in between two of your teeth. Many adults do not experience gap teeth, even if they did as a child, and is not typically something to worry about if your child has a gap, as they will more than likely grow out of it in adulthood.
If you have more than one gap in your teeth, even after all of your adult teeth have grown in, you might want to consider speaking to one of our dental professionals about diastema treatment options. Keep reading to learn if you are an ideal candidate for teeth bonding and other ways to cover the gap in your front teeth.
Options For Covering A Gap In Your Front Teeth
To close the gap in your teeth is not a complicated procedure. There are numerous ways our dental surgeons can help you close the gaps in your front teeth, as well as walk you through your available options for treatment, and help you determine which one is the best for you. Each patient is different. Braces are the most common way to fix gaps in your teeth, but it’s not the only option.
Many of our patients choose to close their tooth gaps with clear or invisible braces such as Invisalign. They are most commonly used in mild or moderate cases of diastema. Composite bonding and porcelain veneers are also other alternatives if your teeth are over spaced, it’s a much better option than braces.
A gap in your front teeth is not a cause for concern when it comes to your medical safety. There are, however, reasons that gaps still exist in your teeth into adulthood. It is best to schedule a consultation with one of our dental professionals to properly assess your particular situation. It’s a pretty straightforward assessment, and we are here for you every step of the way.
