The Best Ways to Get Rid of Gapped Teeth - Smiles by Jiveh

The Best Ways to Get Rid of Gapped Teeth

When you’re a child, a gap between your teeth can be a cute novelty. However, as an adult, having gapped teeth can make you feel insecure about your smile. The good news is that cosmetic dentistry has come a long way from metal braces when it comes to fixing those gaps. In fact, there are several ways to fix gapped teeth while maintaining a nice smile in the process.

Dental Bonding

This method is one of the fastest and most inexpensive ways to fix gapped teeth. In typically one visit, your dentist can apply a tooth-colored resin to your teeth, shape the resin to make the ideal shape needed to close the gap, and harden the resin so it is securely bonded to your tooth.

While this is a quick and cost-effective way to fix gaps, the resin can be prone to staining so it’s important to proper good oral hygiene.


If you’re looking for a more permanent way to correct gaps, veneers are a good option. When you opt for veneers, a thin piece of porcelain is bonded over your tooth for a sturdy way of getting rid of gapped teeth.

While veneers are a good option here, they do require your dentist to file down some of your enamel and cannot be reversed once bonded.


If you have several gaps to repair or would like more gradual results, Invisalign aligners are a great option. Rather than filling your mouth with metal brackets and wires, we’ll make custom aligners for your teeth that are barely recognizable — the perfect solution for adults who need to maintain a more professional-looking smile.
