Spacing between teeth
When you have spaces between one or several sets of teeth.
Why you must consider fixing spacing between your teeth?
Teeth are meant to fit together snugly to support each other. When teeth are spaced out, there’s a greater risk that they’ll wobble or break, and food can get stuck in spaces and begin to rot your teeth and gums.
Besides its effect on your confidence, widely spaced teeth may also affect your oral hygiene. Teeth gaps tend to trap food particles, which trigger bacteria and plaque build-up in your mouth. If unchecked, this may weaken your gums and teeth, causing complications such as periodontitis, tooth decay, and gingivitis.
How to fix gap in front teeth?
Depending on the complexity of your situation, the following treatments are available to fix spacing in teeth in Pune:
1. Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is the quickest, easiest, and cheapest way to fix spacing in teeth. Dentists at Bhandari Dental Clinic will shape and apply a tooth-colored resin material on the affected spot. They’ll then harden it with a special light to secure it in place.
A dental bonding procedure can be completed in a single dentist visit. It doesn’t involve the removal of the enamel, making it a reversal procedure.
Although this procedure is simple and economical, it has a few drawbacks. The composite material may stain over time and cause tooth discoloration. It’s also not as durable as other teeth restorations as the bonding material may break and chip off several years down the line.
If you’ve discolored and/or chipped teeth that also have gaps, veneers may be your best treatment option. They’re ceramic or porcelain shells that the dentist places and bonds over your teeth to cover gaps and other imperfections.
Veneers are a great option because they do not stain and they are far more permanent than bonding. The color and shape can be custom designed to look and feel more natural.
3. Braces and clear aligners
For more severe cases of teeth spacing, you may need to see Dr. Meyer to prescribe you the right braces or Invisalign.
Both techniques restore your teeth to their ideal position and improve your smile while promoting proper function.
Braces use metal brackets to restore your teeth to their normal position while Invisalign utilizes a set of clear plastic trays. A complimentary in office consultation can help you decide which option would be your best way to go.
As such, seeing an Invisalign dentist like Dr. Sameer Bhandari may be more appropriate if you want to fix teeth spacing.
Can Clear Aligners help?
