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, first let’s look into what causes gap teeth to prevent it in the first place and what can be done to help it.
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 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.
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. In order to ensure the longevity of the resin is maintained, be sure to take good care of it.
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.
