It is very easy to fix gaps in the teeth in most cases. If you have decided to get help with this, then you are reading the right article, so keep on reading.

How to Fix Gaps in the Teeth

Your dentist can use composite bonding, orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign or they can also fit veneers over the composite material. Below is a little bit about each;

Composite Bonding

This treatment is growing much more popular in recent days with the advancement of composite. It requires no needles, no teeth preparation, no drilling. This treatment helps fix the gaps and makes the teeth look more uniform, and results can last up to 5 years. It is a painless way to fix small gaps in the teeth.

This treatment works by putting a composite resin on top of the tooth. It is always tooth-colored and after polishing, makes the smile look whiter and straighter. In just a few visits, you could have the perfect smile without any pain. It is a very affordable treatment and has quick results. One downside though is that it is not as long-lasting as porcelain or teeth straightening.

Teeth Straightening

This is a long-lasting and much more natural way of fixing teeth gaps. It can take a few months but the results last much longer as it is your own teeth! Some options your dentist would offer include Invisalign, Clear Aligners, Cosmetic Braces, and others. Invisalign is more popular than a fixed brace because the aligners are clear and almost invisible.

The treatment using Invisalign is easy and gently moves the teeth into the right position to fix gaps/crowded teeth. To finalise the treatment, the dentist would usually recommend composite bonding and whitening to achieve the best possible results. With this, the results can last a long time.

Porcelain Veneers

These are very durable and crafted in the laboratory to encase and cover your teeth. They are a very realistic replica of your teeth and fit perfectly on top of them. You can have the perfect smile with these. This procedure requires some tooth preparation to ensure the porcelain veneer matches and fits on your existing teeth perfectly.
