Tired Of Having That Space Between Your Two Front Teeth?

How we perceive our smile and appearance affects our self-esteem, our moods and how we function in social and business relationships. Common conditions that impact negatively on your smile include broken, cracked or worn teeth, discolored teeth, missing teeth, crooked teeth, decayed teeth, gaps between your teeth and/or “gummy smiles.” Each patient and each specific circumstance must be evaluated on its own merits. Factors such as occlusion [bite], oral habits, available space, health of the gum tissue, severity of the problem and patient expectation must be taken into consideration while planning your cosmetic makeover. Closing spaces may be accomplished with tooth-colored composite resin bonding, porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns.

This patient chose the least invasive technique – bonding a tooth-colored material [composite] to both upper central incisors. No tooth reduction was necessary. The teeth are not attached and the patient can still floss between the centrals to maintain her oral hygiene. The result was a natural improved smile and a very happy patient. Call our office if you think you’re a candidate for this type of procedure. 678 810 1100
