Gaps in your smile can really make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.
At Highgrove Dental Care, it is one of the cosmetic dentistry concerns we address most often so that our patients can feel good about the way they look. We address the gap issue in a few different ways depending on your needs.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Cosmetic dental bonding uses the same highly esthetic material that we use for tooth-colored fillings. We can match the correct shade to your teeth, and your end result provides a seamless look. Cosmetic dental bonding works best on small gaps or slightly misshapen teeth that are not involved directly in chewing.
If you have wide or multiple gaps in your smile, you might consider porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin tooth-like restorations that cover the front of your natural tooth and provide you with a new smile profile.
Veneers can even correct the appearance of misalignment, shortened or worn teeth, and non-uniform teeth.
We want the best for our patients, and in some cases, orthodontics may be the most appropriate solution when it comes to closing the gaps in your smile. Even short-term cosmetic orthodontics can move your teeth enough that additional cosmetic dentistry is more effective.
If you would like to address the gaps in your smile, contact our St. Paul dental office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Terry O’Neill.
