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.

Ways to Transform Gapped Teeth
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?
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!
