Hate The Gap In Your Front Teeth? Cosmetic Procedures That Can Give You The Smile You Want

Dentist Blog

Having a gap in your front teeth gives you a unique smile that you can love. If you hate the gap you own, however, you may want to consider any of these cosmetic procedures. With cosmetic dentistry you can have the smile you've always wanted, and finally be gap-free!

Composite bonding 

If the gap in your teeth is small, you may want to consider composite bonding to make the space less noticeable. This cosmetic procedure requires no sedation or pain management, and doesn't involve drilling. A special glue is placed on the edges of your teeth to harden and is then filed to look natural in appearance. This bonding material is mixed to be the same color as your teeth, so the results are realistic and attractive.

This procedure is great because it can be reversed. If you don't like having a smaller gap in your teeth after all, your dentist can simply file away the composite bonding and put your smile back in its original state.


If your gap is very wide or due to having missing teeth, then braces can be a great solution for you. You can get clear, traditional metal, or behind-the-teeth versions to help improve your smile. Braces will not only help close the gap in your front teeth, they will help straighten your other teeth as well for a beautiful, even smile over a period of a few months to a few years. Talk to your dentist to find out the best braces for your situation to give you the best results.


Veneers are porcelain caps that are placed over your existing tooth to change its appearance. People get veneers to make their teeth appear larger, straighter, or to fill in gaps in their teeth. This option may be for you if you want more permanent results than composite bonding but don't want to wait for braces to change your teeth. 

Getting veneers is a more invasive procedure than composite bonding since your teeth will need to be shaped in order for the veneers to take hold, and requires minimal pain management to perform. If you are considering cosmetic dentistry to repair the gap in your front teeth, veneers may be an excellent option for you.

If you hate the gap in your front teeth, there are many ways you can fix the issue. Whether you get braces, composite bonding, or veneers to repair the space in your teeth, the results can give you the smile you have always wanted.

Emergency Dental Care

The average dentist takes many client appointments each day and also deals with emergency situations on a regular basis. Dental emergencies are very common because people are likely to put off having tooth pain fixed until the pain becomes unbearable. Some people have anxiety about dental visits, and others are trying to avoid the expense of dental care. In either case, the end result is often a dental emergency. I have worked as a professional dental hygienist for many years and have seen all types of dental emergencies. I hope that this blog will help people identify potential emergencies before they become too serious and will allow people to know when to get help.
