Depending on the size of the gap, your budget, and a number of other factors, Dr. Rink and his team can recommend a treatment to meet your needs and goals:
- Dental Bonding: Dental bonding provides an affordable and fast solution to gapped teeth. During this treatment, Dr. Rink uses a malleable, tooth-colored plastic material to close the gap in a way that looks natural.
- Porcelain Veneers: Designed to mimic the appearance of enamel, these thin porcelain shells are placed on the front of the teeth to conceal a variety of minor cosmetic flaws. We can design veneers to close the gaps between your front teeth.
- Frenectomy: If a gap is caused by an overly large frenum, it can be corrected with a simple surgery. This option is usually recommended for younger patients whose jaws are still developing and can adjust without guidance after surgery. Adults may need orthodontics or another treatment following frenectomy to close the gap. Closing gaps in your smile can go a long way toward boosting your self-confidence.
