If a patient is tired of seeing the gap or gaps in between their teeth every time they look in the mirror, there are several solutions. The cosmetic dentists at the Washington Center for Dentistry suggest 3 main cosmetic dentistry solutions commonly used for eliminating gaps in between the teeth: porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or Invisalign®. Porcelain veneers bond directly to the front of the teeth and are used to mask gaps in the teeth. Dental bonding offers quick, affordable and easy enhancements to improve the aesthetic appeal of the smile. Invisalign® is an option that gently moves the teeth through removable aligners that look like clear mouth guards.
"I was in DC for a conference when my temporary crown fell off. The staff fit me in on a Saturday morning and went above and beyond to help me. They were wonderful! Highest rating!"- W.M. / Facebook / Nov 21, 2015
"I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing this dentistry is. Dr. Deutsch and crew are simply amazing. I specifically would like to say how amazing Lisha Puckett was with helping me. She made a point to come in early to help me make an appointment without even a second thought. The customer service, not to mention the phenomenal dentistry, is just unequaled. I had one of the worst bites and crooked teeth you could imagine, and Dr. Deutsch and Lisha worked with me over a span of almost two years, going back in forth with Invisalign making sure that I was getting the teeth/bite adjustments that I needed. They came in early and late to help me out with my work schedule, and they made adjustments when necessary. I just cannot say enough good things about the Washington Center for Dentistry and all of its employees. They are simply fantastic!!"- S.D. / Yelp / Jul 04, 2017
"The dental professionals at the Washington Center for Dentistry are top notch. They do a thorough job, with as little pain and inconvenience as possible. And they are nice people."- L.C. / Google / May 06, 2017
"My oral/dental examination was very thorough, including checking lymph nodes, TMJ, tongue and oral cavity cancer screening. Reviewing my x-rays, Dr. Deutsch pointed out several interesting things, and I learned something new about my teeth."- A.Z. / Google / Apr 30, 2017
"Dr Deutsch has been my dentist for the last 25 years! I love his staff, love his office, and love him. At this point I've seen most of his colleagues too and they are fantastic as well. When I came to D.C. 26 years ago, I went to a recommended dentist close to my then-office, who told me that I would have to come in every three months for cleanings and that I was going to need tons on work. I was shocked: back in my hometown, my dentist had always told me I had great teeth and a healthy mouth. I went to Dr Deutsch for a second opinion (which was that I had - and have to this day - great oral health) and have never looked back."- M.L. / Facebook / Apr 28, 2017

Ways to Transform Gapped Teeth@headingTag>
Porcelain veneers bond directly to the front of your teeth. They can be used to mask gaps, transform chipped teeth, or make a smaller tooth look the same size as the rest of the teeth. This option has become very popular due to its simplicity and versatility. Porcelain veneers have the same look and reflectivity of natural teeth, so they are aesthetically pleasing.
Dental bonding offers quick, affordable, and easy enhancements to improve the aesthetic appeal of your smile. Bonding can be used to conceal a number of aesthetic flaws and is commonly used to fill chips in teeth or close gaps between teeth. The tooth-colored resin used during bonding has a very natural look and texture, blending seamlessly with your natural teeth.
Invisalign® is an option that gently moves your teeth through removable aligners that look like clear mouth guards. Invisalign® allows you to remove the aligners when eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. They are nearly invisible when on the teeth so may be more aesthetically desirable than traditional braces.
Which Option is Right for Me?@headingTag>
When determining the best option to transform gapped teeth, one of our dentists will take into account the condition of your teeth, your aesthetic goals and your time constraints. Dental bonding is the quickest way to instantly close gaps since they will be applied during one office visit. Porcelain veneers are another almost instantaneous way to fix gaps and can be placed in around two office visits. For teeth that require more extensive work, Invisalign® is the best option since it works over time to properly align teeth to close gaps. Each option will help you in your journey toward beautiful, gap-free teeth!
