How Can I Effectively Hide A Smile Gap?

The presence of excess space between your teeth can make you self-conscious about your appearance. This kind of gap is often present because of unresolved problems with the way a person’s teeth are aligned, but it can also be the fault of an undersized tooth that leaves more room than it should between itself and its neighbor. At our Katy, TX dentist’s office, we can offer treatment to correct the problem and give you renewed confidence in your smile. Different solutions can prove effective, and we can help you make sure that you proceed with the right approach to care. We can recommend Invisalign treatment to discreetly move teeth that are out of position, or we can discuss the use of porcelain veneers to add to a tooth’s size and improve its shape in a way that closes excess space.

Problems With Tooth Size And Alignment Can Leave Spaces Between Teeth

There are different reasons why people have more space between teeth than they should. Often, this problem occurs because of poor smile spacing, which can leave you with gaps, overlaps, and other issues. However, it can also be an issue if you have a tooth that is smaller than it should be, as this can leave some space between it and its neighbor. Because we offer different cosmetic dental procedures as well as treatment with Invisalign clear aligners, we can provide an effective solution for a gap that responds to your smile issues.

Discussing Your Treatment With Veneers

Porcelain veneers can correct problems by changing the shape, size, and color of teeth, and in some cases can even effectively hide problems linked to poor spacing. We will carefully measure your teeth and determine what shape and size your restorations should be to make the right improvements. Through this, and through preparatory work to make sure you can have your veneers permanently secured, we can effectively prepare you for care. At a follow-up visit, we will affix your custom restorations to make the changes that you want!

Using Invisalign Aligners To Close Gaps And Straighten Overlaps

Through treatment with Invisalign, we can make progressive improvements to your appearance without asking you to wear a visible, fixed appliance. By providing a discreet and removable alternative to metal braces, we can make the decision to start orthodontic treatment easier for people. This work can close gaps, straighten out teeth that overlap, and generally improve the way you look by giving your smile better symmetry.
