A diastema is a gap between two adjacent teeth. Diastemas often occur between the top incisors.
Diastemas don’t generally pose a functional problem. However, many people do not wish to have a gap showing in their smile.
Different solutions may be proposed if you have this situation and would like to address it.
Diastemas can be corrected with removable orthodontic treatments like transparent aligners or a fixed apparatus like braces. After thorough examination, your Lapointe Dental Centre professional will suggest the best solution for your particular case.
Veneers are tailored to your dentition. When possible, veneers offer a simple and quick solution to fill gaps between the teeth.
This solution only applies to adults whose dentition is solidly anchored, compared to children.
Crowns can be a solution for closing the space between teeth.
Talk to your dentist to determine the solution that best suits you.
