How do you close a gap in your teeth without orthodontics?
You can get veneers or dental crowns to close the gap between your teeth as part of a smile makeover procedure. But you need to know why you have a gap in the first place. Here are three reasons why you have developed a gap between your teeth:
- Gum problem. A gum problem causes loss of supporting bone, making the tooth mobile and creating the gap. Therefore, closing the gap is only a short-term solution as the tooth will continue to migrate and create a gap yet again if the gum problem is not addressed.
- If the bite is too heavy, the pressure causes the tooth to move and creates a gap. In addition to closing the gap, the bite needs to be addressed.
- The size of the tooth is small, if the tooth in question does not have a gum problem or a bite problem, then veneer or crown will be sufficient.
