Teeth Gap Filling

Introduction to Teeth Gap Filling

Many of us have a natural gap between our teeth. For some people, they are happy to go through life or embrace this gap, while others want to find a way to close off the gap to have a more traditional appearance. The good news is that there are now many options on offer when it comes to how to treat gaps between teeth. Today we’re going to discover more about teeth gap filler and how you can work to perfect your smile to boost your confidence with our team’s support.

What Causes Teeth Gaps?

Before we look at gap teeth treatment options, you might be wondering what causes these gaps between the teeth in the first place. Some gaps are caused by losing a tooth, whereas many gaps are just a natural space between the teeth. As with all of our bodies and differences, this is just something some people have while others are lucky enough to have perfectly aligned teeth. It is more common in people with smaller and narrower teeth as the teeth don’t fill up the whole of the jaw or dental arch.

Many children have a gap between their teeth when they have their milk teeth, but this often goes away when the larger adult teeth come through. Other children simply don’t develop some of their teeth, leading to a larger gap in the smile. A lot of celebrities and models actually embrace this gap now, but for some people, it leaves them feeling imperfect or self-conscious. There is no obligation to close off the gap, but if you do want to consider filling gaps in teeth, there are options on offer that our team can support you with.

What is Teeth Gap Filling?

There are multiple options for anyone considering front teeth gap filling and it will be up to you to work with your team to figure out the best option for your unique needs. The size and placement of the gap will have a big impact on the type of treatment you go for. Smaller spaces can use composite bonding, which is tooth-coloured composite that works to close up small spaces. If you are looking to improve the overall shape and look of your smile, dental veneers are a good option to place over the front of the tooth. Should you have issues with the tooth structure or decay, a dental crown may be recommended.

Our team often works with patients to place a dental bridge into a larger gap. This is a replacement tooth that will be secured to your adjacent teeth. Dental bridges in Manchester are a great way to fill up a tooth gap that makes you feel unconfident when smiling and opening your mouth. Dental implants are an alternative to dental bridges you can consider for failing or missing teeth. Finally, you have the option of traditional or invisible braces to close off teeth gaps. As you can see, there are plenty of options to choose from and our team will be here to support you with choosing the right option for your dental concerns.

Choosing the Best Option for Teeth Gap Filling

With so many options to choose from, you might be wondering which would be the best choice for your personal needs. We will recommend that you start by booking an initial consultation with our team, where we can review your teeth gap or gaps and then work with you to understand your goals for this treatment. It’s important that we take the time to diagnose the reason for the gap, whether that’s simply your genetics or potentially something else that requires treatment.

Teeth gaps can often run in families or be a result of smaller teeth. Bad habits in your childhood, such as sucking your thumb, can also leave gaps in the front teeth. Gum disease or an injury to the tooth will be a more concerning reason for a tooth gap. If we do find there is a concern like this with your teeth, we’ll also look at ways we can possibly treat this condition before also closing up the gap. We don’t want to simply mask the problem only to find that you have a long-term dental issue in the future.

Our team will be here to support you with your teeth gap filling treatment in the future. No matter the size of your gap or the reason for it appearing, we’ll be here to find the underlying cause of the gap before suggesting the best possible solution for your personal needs.
