Dental Bonding for Gaps Between Your Teeth – What You Need to Know

Developing gaps in your teeth, particularly where your smile is in view, can make a huge difference to your overall appearance. Even when you think that you take good care of your teeth, when gaps appear in your teeth they can simply be an unfortunate occurrence that was out of your control. Thankfully, dental bonding for gaps between your teeth could be a solution for you to restore your self-confidence and feel happy with your smile again.

Before we go into how dental bonding can be useful for your gap teeth problems, let’s look into what causes gap teeth to prevent it in the first place and what can be done to help it.

What are the common causes of gap teeth?

There can be several reasons why you’ve developed gap teeth. Some of the common causes include the following:

– The size of your jawbone and the size of your teeth don’t match together

– You suffer from missing teeth or their size is incorrect. This means other teeth around the mouth try to compensate for the missing gaps and move.

– Your tongue is pushing against your front teeth when you swallow, causing them to drift apart over time.

– Regular thumb sucking can cause teeth to move forward.

– Gum disease can weaken the jawbone, causing teeth to loosen and change position.

Even if gaps in your teeth don’t worry you, it’s still important to check your oral health with your dentist. This is because they may be able to identify an underlying cause that could be addressed before further long-term issues occur, including the forming of gaps between your teeth which can be rectified at the same time. This is where dental bonding for gaps could be an option for you.

Dental bonding for gaps: How it can benefit you

There are several treatments available to help treat gaps in teeth. During your consultation, you’ll be able to discuss which option is best for you and dental bonding gaps may be one of the options that could be suggested to you by one of our dentists.

This is because dental bonding gaps are considered one of the quickest and easiest solutions. The process involves a resin being applied to where the gap is present between the teeth. A light is then used to settle the application and eventually harden for the resin to look like your natural teeth and make your smile look even. If required, the resin can be removed.

One of the main benefits of using dental bonding for gaps is that it can normally be done within one quick visit to the dentist. However, the downside is that the resin applied can stain and chip over time. To ensure the longevity of the resin is maintained, be sure to take good care of it.

Getting treatment for your gap teeth at Dental Solutions

If you have gaps forming between your teeth, it’s advised to contact your dentist to discuss the problem. In some cases, some patients prefer to keep the gap as they feel it applies personality to their appearance. However, others prefer to treat the problem as soon as possible.

At Dental Solutions, we provide composite bonding to resolve treatment for gapped teeth. During your consultation, we’ll examine your situation with the gaps and determine whether dental bonding for gaps is right for you, or if you’d benefit from another form of treatment such as veneers or Invisalign.

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.

I recently needed some urgent treatment and after trying a couple of dentists in the area, dental solutions were the only dentist that agreed to see me, genuinely nobody else showed any interest in helping me. The receptionist I spoke to initially was super compassionate and understanding and did all she could to get me in asap. I saw Lauren for all of my appointments, and I’ve now had: a composite filling, root canal and emax crown and just yesterday had a wisdom tooth extracted. I don't know what Lauren does but I have had zero pain or discomfort with any treatments during and after. I'm extremely happy with the results of her work. She definitely knows her stuff and filled me with the utmost confidence whilst in the chair! I literally cant find any fault with any of the experiences I have had so far. They go the extra mile and do it with a smile. What more can you ask for?! Definitely my dentist for the foreseeable future! Thank you Lauren and everyone!

Had my initial consultation with Lauren, truly professional and extremely friendly. She explained all my options in detail and following discussions opted for veneers and can't wait to see the end result.
