Solutions for closing a diastema
Generally, dental diastemas do not cause any functional problems, but most people who have them in the visible part of their smile do not appreciate them. If you have a gap between your teeth and want to close it, there are a number of solutions that can be implemented.
Diastema can be corrected with removable orthodontic devices, such as clear aligners, or a fixed device, such as braces. After a thorough examination, a dentist at a Lapointe Dental Centre can suggest the best solution for you and refer you to an orthodontist. Our orthodontic treatments are also available for adults.
Veneers are built to fit your teeth. When possible, veneers provide a quick and easy solution to fill the gaps between teeth. This solution is only applicable to adults whose teeth are more firmly anchored than those of children.
A crown can be a way to close the space between teeth. By talking to your dentist or another professional, you can find the solution that is best for you.
