Would you be surprised to learn that Americans spend millions of dollars every year just on improving the color of their teeth? Having imperfections in your smile can be embarrassing and can even make it difficult to eat. Having gaps in your teeth can also be uncomfortable, but there are a number of options you may consider for removing the gaps in your pearly whites.

One option you can consider is dental veneers, which are thin shells designed to cover your teeth. Veneers can be used to correct a number of problems, including small gaps in your smile. These shells are also useful because they are designed to match the appearance of your natural teeth and are a great long term solution that can withstand everyday wear and tear.

If veneers aren’t the best option for you, dental bonding could be a good alternative. Bonding is generally one of the most cost-efficient cosmetic dentistry options. Our team will use composite resin to perfect your smile, resulting in a natural look. Bonding usually lasts for up to 10 years.

If your gap is caused by a missing tooth, you may benefit from an implant or dental bridges. Both of these treatments are anchored to your pearly whites. Either of these restorations will improve the appearance and the function of your smile—and stop your natural teeth from shifting.
