How Can I Close Gaps Between My Teeth?

Gaps between teeth are a common concern that numerous dental treatments can address. Not only do those spaces present an aesthetic issue, but could also affect a patient’s overall oral health. While traditional braces may be the first solution that comes to mind for many when considering closing smile gaps, many patients opt for different approaches that offer their own advantages.

At OC Lifesmiles, Dr. John Cross and his team are committed to providing patients with their dream smile. He recognizes how gaps between teeth can affect a patient’s confidence and takes great care to provide optimal results. Available procedures at OC Lifesmiles to close gaps include:

  • Porcelain Veneers – A popular cosmetic procedure, porcelain veneers can address a variety of dental concerns, including tooth gaps. Veneers are constructed from thin, durable porcelain shells that are adhered to the front of the tooth and are a common addition to a Smile Makeover. Since the cosmetic treatment features custom-made restorations, veneers can fix specific patient imperfections with natural-looking results.
  • Invisalign® – As an innovative alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign® is designed to straighten crooked teeth without the discomfort of metal wires. Invisalign® is meant to correct problems, such as misalignment, unwanted gaps, and overcrowding. The treatment consists of transparent and removable aligners that will gradually shift teeth into the desired position.
  • Cosmetic Bonding – One of the quickest ways to address aesthetic issues is with cosmetic bonding. The treatment involves a color-matched resin bonded to the tooth, which can repair chips, cracks, and smile gaps. Cosmetic bonding can preserve most of the natural tooth structure and the procedure can typically be done in one office visit.

Dr. Cross has done such a fabulous job in the 8+ years I’ve been his patient, it leaves him with very little work to do on me these past few years. I appreciate how he embraces and has mastered cutting-edge technology. It’s also comforting that he remembers minor details about the condition of my teeth without even having to refer to my chart. The girls at the front desk have an equally impressive memory and are so sweet and friendly.
