Nothing is more embarrassing than discovering a huge piece of broccoli stuck in a gap between your teeth. Gaps between teeth are not only unattractive; they frequently act as repositories for food particles to collect. Couple large gaps with inadequate brushing and you may end up with gum disease or tooth decay. If you think you need expensive orthodontic treatments to close the gaps in your teeth, you are mistaken. A visit to Dr. Chee at Aesthetic Dental Studio is just a click away. Regardless of the reason for the gaps in your teeth, cosmetic dentistry can be employed to correct the problem and restore your winning smile. Some of the reasons you have gaps may be one or more of the following:
- Missing teeth
- Poor oral care habits
Unfortunately, many people who undergo orthodontia as a youngster may have undergone unnecessary tooth extraction. The remaining teeth, instead of fitting snugly together spread out and leave gaps that look unsightly and cause other problems. There are too primary options available:
- Invisalign uses custom fitted, progressive mouth trays to guide your teeth, gently, into the desired position.
- Instant orthodontics using porcelain veneers can be use, especially in conjunction with smaller looking teeth, to add volume to the smile line, filling in the gaps.
