Now you can have any gaps in your teeth corrected so that you can once again feel confident when smiling.
What causes tooth gaps?
Why do some people have gapped teeth and others do not? Some of the more common reasons why someone would have a gap in between one or more of their teeth include:
- They used to suck their thumb when they were a child
- They have a habit of tongue thrusting
- Their teeth are too small for their jawbone and therefore create many gaps
- They have extra gum tissue making it look like gapped teeth
- They have been diagnosed with a periodontal disease that is causing their teeth to separate from their gums
Fixing tooth gaps with dental veneers
Dental veneers are one of the more commonly used options for those who are living with gaps in between their teeth. Fixing tooth gaps using veneers is a relatively simple dental solution that is considered to be a highly effective treatment option for fixing both small gaps and significant gaps in between someone's teeth. When veneers are chosen to fix gapped teeth, the result will look completely natural, which means the patient can now show off their smile with all the confidence in the world.
A few common additional options that are used for fixing tooth gaps include wearing braces, which is going to take many months to work and is dependent on each dental patient’s particular situation. Dental bonding is thus an option that can be used to fix minor gaps in between the teeth in a much quicker fashion, which although works well does not last quite as long as other options, like dental veneers. Dental implants are another option for those who are actually missing one or more of their whole teeth, which causes considerable gaps in between the teeth, as implants are an actual tooth replacement and therefore can completely close huge gaps caused by missing teeth.
