Do you have a gap in your smile? This happens when a slight space exists in between your teeth and is more noticeable if it involves your front teeth. Some people have no problem with this condition and just treat it as part of what makes their appearance unique, like celebrities Madonna and Anna Paquin who chose not to do anything about their gapped smiles. However, if you are uncomfortable with the space between your teeth, there are some treatments that can help you improve on this issue.
Cosmetic dental treatments focus on making your smile more aesthetically pleasing. In some cases, cosmetic improvement also leads to improvements in how the teeth functions. One such cosmetic treatment that can improve the appearance of a gapped smile involves the use of dental veneers. These are thin porcelain caps that are placed on the front surface of the tooth to make it look wider or bigger, effectively closing the gap that exists between two front teeth. The veneers can also improve your smile by making the affected tooth look whiter or closer in colour to the rest of your natural teeth.
Another cosmetic dental treatment that can improve spaced teeth problems is the use of dental braces. Orthodontic treatments work by moving teeth into better alignment. In cases of spaces between teeth, the affected teeth are brought closer together using the orthodontic braces, resulting in a smile that looks perfectly aligned without unsightly spaces.
