Gaps in teeth
For some people, gaps between teeth are attractive and a desirable feature. For others, this is not the case. Aside from their aesthetics though, there is the potential that gaps in your teeth could affect your dental health so it is important to get any tooth gaps looked at by a dentist before deciding on your next steps.
If you want to get rid of a gap between your teeth, whether it is a gap in your front teeth or a gap in your bottom teeth, then cosmetic dentistry can help you do so.
At Marylebone Smile Clinic, we are the leading providers of veneers in London and are experts at treating gaps in teeth using porcelain veneers when your individual circumstances allow treatment. After a consultation with our cosmetic dentist, you will know what options are best for you moving forward and whether veneers will be right for you.
How to close a gap in your teeth
If you are wondering how you can close the gap in your teeth then you will be pleased to know that you have a choice of multiple options in front of you. The method that we recommend you use to remove the gap in your teeth is with porcelain veneers.
Veneers can provide you with your dream smile, and this goes beyond closing the gap between your teeth. Once you have received your veneers then your smile will be your ideal shape, colour, and will be easy to maintain through regular brushing and interdental cleaning.
There are other treatments available aside from veneers and some may be more suitable depending on your case. For instance, you will not be able to receive veneers with no teeth present that they can be fitted to. In this example, a better treatment for you would be implants.
Will veneers fix huge gap teeth?
Filling large gaps between teeth may not be a suitable use for veneers as you may end up with specific teeth that are too large for your mouth and this will stand out when you smile.
However, you can still be treated with veneers if you have large gaps between your teeth, you will just need more veneers to make your smile look natural.
For example, if you are trying to close a gap in your front teeth then we may suggest you receive more veneers across your upper teeth so that your front teeth do not stand out by being much bigger than their neighbours.
Gap teeth before and after
We recommend that you take a look at a portfolio of work before deciding on your choice of cosmetic dentist.
Take a look at one example of our work below where the patient received two front teeth veneers and two more to improve and match her smile. Notice how her teeth are now a more desirable shape, shade, and how the gap between her front teeth is closed.

Gaps between the front teeth are particularly common with children and often the gap resolves itself with age. However, if you are an adult, then you will need treatment such as orthodontics or cosmetic dentistry to close the gap in your front teeth.
What is diastema?
Diastema is just the dental term for a gap between any of your teeth. The most common form of diastema, and the one that we treat most often in the clinic, is midline diastema. This is when the gap is located between the two front teeth.

Why am I getting a gap in my front teeth?
A gap between your front teeth can be due to a number of reasons. This includes your genetics because when you grow, your jaw or your frenum could push your teeth apart. Gum disease could also be a reason, so it is important to seek dental advice when you notice a gap growing between your teeth.
Do gaps in teeth get bigger with age?
