Do you have a gap in your front teeth? Do you have a larger gap caused by a missing tooth? If you do—and even if you don’t—you understand that these types of gaps can be embarrassing. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to address these problems.

One option you can consider is dental veneers, which are thin shells designed to cover your teeth. Veneers can be used to correct a number of problems, including small gaps in your smile. These shells are also useful because they are designed to match the appearance of your natural teeth and are a great long term solution that can withstand everyday wear and tear.

If veneers aren’t the best option for you, dental bonding could be a good alternative. Bonding is generally one of the most cost-efficient cosmetic dentistry options. Our team will use composite resin to perfect your smile, resulting in a natural look. Bonding usually lasts for up to 10 years.

If your gap is caused by a missing tooth, you may benefit from an implant or dental bridges. Both of these treatments are anchored to your pearly whites. Either of these restorations will improve the appearance and the function of your smile—and stop your natural teeth from shifting.

Are you interested in learning more about any of these treatment options? Would you simply like to schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. James Thomason? If so, we invite you to contact North Fork Dental Care by calling us at 208-356-3012. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have and to inspect your pearly whites for signs of trouble.
