Remove Gaps In Your Teeth
If you have space, or gaps between the teeth, there are three options for closing gaps:
Bonding - Ideal for patient with small gaps and natural teeth to attach the bonding material. The bonding material is placed on the in-between surfaces of the teeth to close the gap. Bonding is tooth colored and is used in lower stress area.
Porcelain Veneers - Ideal for patient with a large gap, multiple gaps or someone unhappy with their teeth color. A thin layer of your natural teeth is removed and a custom made porcelain veneer is bonded onto the font and side surfaces of your teeth. To close one gap, usually two veneers are required. One on each side of the space.
Porcelain Crowns. - Ideal for patient with very large gaps or existing crowns. The existing crown(s) will be removed. Or if the patient does not have an existing crown, the tooth will be reduced to accommodate a crown. To close one gap, usually two porcelain crowns are required (i.e. one on each side of the space). The crowns are then bonded or cemented into place to close the gap.
