Do you feel self-conscious about your tooth gap? In most cases, patients are referred to an orthodontist for braces in Coral Springs. But did you know that braces aren’t the only option for closing tooth gaps?
Quite surprisingly, there are cosmetic dental procedures that can help complete your smile without you having to undergo orthodontic treatment. Your dentist will assess the extent of the tooth gap and recommend treatments that will suit you best.
Porcelain veneers are customizable, ultra-thin tooth-colored shells that your cosmetic dentist will attach to your front teeth to recreate your smile. Despite their thinness, veneers are quite strong and durable.
This is a great option for people who would like to improve their teeth's size, shape, and color. If you have a narrow gap in between your front teeth, your cosmetic dentist can reshape two veneers and place them side by side to cover the gap.
People who have missing teeth obviously have large tooth gaps. It would take more than braces to restore smile and oral function. Therefore, cosmetic dentists recommend dental implant placement. A dental implant is usually made from titanium or zirconia.
These posts are surgically implanted into your jawbone to replace missing tooth roots. Once they are in place and have fully integrated with your jawbone, the crowns are added next. Dental implant surgery is the ideal option if you have multiple tooth gaps or if the gap is too large.
Each patient’s case is different. To know what method is best for you, you should consult with your dentist. If you are interested to learn more about braces, we’re more than happy to discuss this with you during your next appointment.
