Teeth Gap Solutions Dentists Recommend

Dentists have more solution options to offer you these days if you're troubled with a tooth gap. This problem makes your smile look unpleasant. For some people, it's even sometimes a source of low self-esteem and insecurity. It can also make your teeth and gums more susceptible to decay. The tooth teeth gap filling solutions are cosmetic by nature, they also have restorative functions.

Porcelain veneers are ideal mainly for fixing your tooth gap but are also excellent solutions for problems like crooked teeth, and extreme discoloration. Veneers are customized porcelain materials that are placed on your teeth's surface. A layer of your teeth's enamel will be taken away to give space to the laminate that will be placed on it. Veneers give you new teeth that are natural-looking in color and shape.

Similar to porcelain veneers is composite resin bonding. It also used to remedy tooth gaps and teeth that are chipped, cracked, or badly discolored. In this procedure, the composite resin filling is set on the back and front of your teeth. It will be sculpted to make it look like part of your natural set of teeth.

To finish the procedure, the dentist will use a light beam of high intensity to harden the material. Polishing will also be done to make it even look and feel closer to your original healthy teeth. This solution usually lasts up to a little over 10 years, assuming you take proper oral care.
