Closing the Gap

Friday, February 18th, 2011, 11:27 am

Some celebrities like David Letterman and the model Lauren Hutton have always worn the gaps between their two front teeth with pride – but most people want the gap gone. The gap is known as a diastema and can be corrected by several methods.

One way to close the gap is by using dental braces. In many cases the diastema can be closed with clear braces such as Invisalign in place of regular orthodontic treatment.

For those who are seeking immediate gratification, the advanced technology used in cosmetic dentistry offers a solution. Depending upon the width of the gap your dentist may choose cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers to give you a beautiful, gap-free smile.

The outcome of these procedures? Freedom to smile without worry. The increased confidence and self-esteem among patients who have cosmetic procedures is astounding.
