How To Fix Gap in Front Teeth..? – OXY Dental

If your teeth are healthy and you simply wish to close the gap between your teeth, there are several cosmetic dental treatments available, including:


  1. Dental bonding. Your dentist applies a tooth-colored composite resin material to conceal the gap. Then, your teeth are shaped and polished for a natural appearance.
  2. Porcelain veneers. These are custom-made ceramic shells that permanently adhere to your front tooth surfaces. They can close down a gap between the teeth for a more uniform look.
  3. Frenectomy. An oral frenum is a band of tissue that connects your lip to your gums. If this piece of tissue is too thick, it can push your teeth apart, creating a gap. A frenectomy releases this band of tissue. In many cases, frenectomy is performed in combination with another cosmetic procedure, such as dental bonding or veneers.
  4. Braces. If the gap is large, you may need braces or clear orthodontic aligners to physically move your teeth closer together. In mild cases, your dentist can usually fix diastema without braces.
  5. Dental bridge. If the gap between your teeth is due to a missing tooth, your dentist may recommend a bridge to replace it. To place a bridge, you must have two healthy teeth on either side of the gap. These teeth will be altered to serve as anchors for your new restoration.
  6. Dental implant. Like a dental bridge, an implant replaces a missing tooth. But with a dental implant, there’s no need to alter the neighboring teeth. An implant is a threaded titanium post that replaces a missing tooth root. Once it’s healed, a dental crown is used to restore it and close the gap between your teeth.

Consult your dentist to find the best option for you

If you’re looking for a way to replace missing teeth, be sure to consult your dentist before making your final decision.

All five options presented are reliable and work well for replacing missing teeth, but discussing the options with a professional is the only way to ensure you get the specific treatment you need.
