Do you take a look at your smile and feel a little bit down about the fact that you have gaps between your teeth? Maybe they’re small spaces. Perhaps you have always just imagined you have skinny teeth but now that you think about it, it might actually be the fact that there’s a bit of extra room between all of them. Regardless of what you call it, the need to fill in extra space between teeth is something we can do beautifully and seamlessly with cosmetic bonding or veneers! Find out more.
How Bonding Can Help
If you are dealing with spacing, we will need to determine the extent. Small spaces that do not suggest you need serious orthodontic work are something we can address with cosmetic bonding. What is this? Think of it as a way to gently fill in the spaces by making it appear as though neighboring teeth are just a little wider. We will add composite, which in the end will look like natural dental tissue, to fill the space for teeth that look like they are neighboring in a flush, esthetically pleasing manner.
When Veneers Are Best
Now, while we can certainly fill in spaces and/or create the illusion of wider teeth with cosmetic bonding, we may suggest porcelain veneers instead. Choosing a set of veneers is often suggested if you are looking to improve not only the small spaces between teeth but if you are hoping to address one or more of the following, as well:
- You want to whiten your smile
- You want to improve tooth texture
- You would like to improve tooth shape in additional ways
