Dec 01, 2022

While teeth gaps are considered a sign of beauty and good luck in some cultures, they might have several medical downsides. Teeth gaps can result from tooth loss, misalignments, an overgrown frenum, gum disease, thumb-sucking as a child, and jawbone problems.

Fortunately, your dentist can help correct teeth gaps and restore a perfect smile. Depending on the size of your gaps, ideal treatment options can include orthodontics, veneers, bridges, implants, and dental bonding.

If you only have minor teeth gaps, you don’t need invasive and lengthy treatments like braces and dental implants. Dental bonding provides a quick, easy, reliable, and inexpensive way to fix multiple teeth gaps. Please keep reading to learn why it’s essential to fix teeth gaps and how dental bonding can help!

How Dental Bonding Fix Teeth Gaps

A dental bonding procedure is quick and straightforward. You might only need a single appointment, and anesthesia may not be necessary. Before the procedure, the dentist will examine your teeth to determine whether you’re a good candidate. Dental bonding is only ideal for small tooth gaps and dental imperfections.

During the procedure, the dentist will begin by preparing the teeth to be bonded. An etching solution is applied to the teeth’ surfaces to roughen them for easy bonding. Then, the dentist will apply a conditioning liquid to allow the composite resin material to attach to the teeth easily.

Next, the dentist will apply putty-like tooth-colored bonding material to the teeth. The material closes the gaps and maintains the natural appearance of the teeth. A special light or laser hardens the bonding material. Lastly, the dentist will polish the teeth to ensure a smooth and natural smile.

Apart from closing teeth gaps, a dentist can also recommend dental bonding to fix other cosmetic problems like:

  • Minor teeth chips and cracks
  • Teeth stains or yellowing that you can’t correct with teeth whitening treatments
  • Correct minor teeth misalignments
  • Improve the shape or size of a tooth

Reasons for Fixing Improper Teeth Gaps

There are several medical downsides of improper teeth gaps, including:

  • Effects your smile

Cosmetic concerns are vital reasons for closing teeth gaps. Teeth gaps can make some people feel self-conscious and unattractive about their smiles. Cosmetic bonding teeth provide a more uniform and natural smile.

  • Poor bite function

Large gaps between teeth can cause a misaligned bite. It can make it difficult and painful to chew food, ultimately forcing you to avoid certain foods or swallow large chunks of food, leading to malnutrition and digestive problems.

  • Discomfort

Big spacing between teeth can cause significant discomfort when chewing food. It can result in tooth and jaw pain. It can also affect the temporomandibular joint and cause earaches, headaches, and other problems.

  • Shifting teeth

Large spacing between teeth can cause significant pressure on specific teeth when chewing food, forcing the teeth to move out of place gradually. Shifting teeth can cause changes in bite and smile and cause further dental issues like tooth decay and gum disease.

  • Difficulty cleaning teeth

Large teeth gaps can affect your oral hygiene significantly. For instance, food particles are likely to get trapped in these places, which can be uncomfortable and difficult to clean thoroughly. Closing these gaps will make it difficult for debris to get trapped.

  • Increased risk of dental issue

As we’ve seen, teeth gaps can trap food and debris, encouraging bacterial plaque and tartar to build up in the mouth. Also, tooth gaps make brushing difficult, increasing your risk of bacterial plaque and tartar.

If not removed, these deposits increase your risk of oral issues like cavities, tooth decay, tooth loss, jawbone damage, bad breath, and tooth yellowing. Fixing teeth gaps will ensure your teeth, gums, and mouth remains healthy, fresh, functional, and beautiful.

  • Speech issues

Large spacing between teeth, especially in front teeth, can affect your speech, making it harder to pronounce words with “s” and “z.” Teeth gaps affect the correct placement of the tongue, allowing air to escape when talking and creating a whistling sound. We offer composite bonding for front teeth.
