Correcting Gaps in Teeth with Teeth Bonding
There are multiple solutions to correcting tooth gaps and spaces between teeth. We offer teeth bonding, veneers, or crowns to correct gaps. Your dentist will work with you to help choose the option best suited for your needs. Our cosmetic dentists do not believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach, so a custom plan is created for each patient. This will ensure you have a treatment plan that you are comfortable with, and that will produce beautiful results.
Orthodontics, or braces, are one of the first options many think of to correct gaps in their teeth. While this is a good and conservative option, the amount of time it takes to see results and the number of appointments required can be significant drawbacks to this course of treatment. The best way to know if orthodontics are best for you is to have a cosmetic evaluation. If you do choose braces as the best option for correcting your tooth gaps, we work in close collaboration with Dr. Paul Rallis at Rallis Orthodontics.
If you are not for having braces, see the options below for correcting tooth gaps:
We often use teeth bonding to correct small tooth gaps because it’s a quick, simple process. To bond teeth, we add a layer of a resin material to your tooth and instantly bond it with a special light. As cosmetic dentistry professionals, we know how to create a natural-looking tooth so you can leave our office with an entirely new smile.
At Lincoln Family Dentistry, we can bond high-grade porcelain veneers directly to your teeth to cover imperfections, reshape your teeth, and hide gaps. Veneers are as thin as contact lenses and are selected specifically to match your surrounding teeth. For these reasons, veneers look very natural. If requested, we can also use lumineers, which are a thinner veneer option.
Sometimes, teeth need more support than veneers or teeth bonding provide. In this situation, porcelain crowns may be the better choice. Porcelain crowns will not only hide gaps but also will hide any other imperfections that could not be covered by a thin veneer. When decay is present, many times a crown is best for the tooth because it provides more stability once the decay has been removed. Porcelain crowns are another beautiful, natural looking option to hide teeth gaps.
Since each option is a custom corrective solution, the cost of porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, and teeth bonding can vary. We will work with you to create a plan that aligns your smile transformation with your budget.
