What Are Gapped Teeth?
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.
How Do You Fix 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.
Washington Center for Dentistry Reviews
I was in DC for a summer internship and had to make an emergency dental appointment for HORRIBLE tooth pain that basically sprang up overnight. The doctors here were able to see me same-day (and the front desk had such compassion for me!). The doctors were able to quickly diagnose my problem and refer me to a specialist for a root canal— the specialist was incredible! I also want to note that my dentist at home consistently dismissed my complaints of sensitivity and pain. The dentists at this office were able to determine within minutes that I needed a root canal! I would give more than 5 stars if I could, and will absolutely be searching for a new dentist, who is as good as the dentists at Washington Center for Dentistry, when I return home.
I really like the warm water polishing and of course the people are amazing! WCD has been my dentist for over a decade.
I have had repairs and cleanings at Washington Center for Dentistry, and every time the work has been superb, the experience flawless, and smoothly run, with an amazing finished product! Thank you, Dr Shlansky!
I’ve been to Dr Matin for two extraction and prep for a future implant. He is careful, concerned (answers all questions clearly and completely) and his work is impeccable. Best of all zero pain or discomfort after the operation- something not that common I think. Highly recommend
No one really wants to need gum grafts, but if you do need them, you want an excellent doctor to conduct the surgery. Dr. Matin is wonderful, warm, and top notch. He has done two grafts on me (five years ago; they’ve healed beautifully), and I’m scheduled for a third. Additionally, everyone in his office is so incredibly nice and helpful!
