Can You Fix Gaps Between The Teeth?

Posted on 5/22/2023 by Dick Hikade, DDS
Can You Fix Gaps Between The Teeth?You probably love your smile and the appearance of your teeth, except for the gaps between the teeth. Spaces in your teeth can affect your confidence and oral health. This may result from teeth shifting, gum disease, missing teeth, and childhood habits like thumb sucking. Fortunately, some dental procedures can help to fix spaced teeth. Learn 3 treatment options for closing gaps between the teeth.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an effective way to solve aesthetic issues. It helps to fill minor gaps between the teeth. The dentist starts by preparing the tooth's surface and then applies a tooth-colored resin material to the side of the neighboring tooth, next to the gap. He then adds a special light to harden the material and secure it in place. The good thing about dental bonding is that it does not involve enamel removal.

Braces and Invisalign

Braces and Invisalign are other ways to fix large gaps between the teeth. They help to move the teeth to their ideal position and promote proper teeth functioning while improving your smile. Braces utilize metal brackets to move the teeth to the normal position, while Invisalign involves clear plastic trays. During the consultation, a dentist can help to decide which option is good for you.


Veneers may be a good option if you have discolored teeth and small gaps between the teeth. In just one dental visit, veneers can transform your smile and the functioning of your teeth. These prosthetic devices are custom fitted to fill in the pre-existing gaps. The good thing about veneers is that they are permanent and stain resistant. In addition, their shape and color are custom designed to look like your natural teeth.
