At our Fayetteville, AR dental office, we offer several cosmetic procedures to treat a variety of issues that impede a winning smile. Whether it’s a cracked tooth or missing tooth or even gaps between teeth, we have a solution.

When it comes to closing gaps between teeth with no hassle, however, we generally recommend two options, and our patients love the results.

Porcelain Veneers to Hide Gaps

Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile. These thin shells, which look exactly like natural teeth, fit over your tooth or teeth and can be made wide enough to camouflage gaps.

Aside from hiding gaps, porcelain veneers are great for covering stains and discoloration on teeth. They also hide minor cracks and imperfections.

Further, they can make teeth appear uniform in height and shape, but it gets even better. Porcelain veneers can be shaded to match the hues of surrounding teeth!

Bonding to Close Gaps

Bonding is a great way to close small gaps between teeth to achieve a winning smile.

When we add bonding material to your tooth, it makes the bonding (or gap closing) process predictable and natural looking. It is also safe and does not damage the natural enamel of your tooth.

Noninvasive Treatments with Fabulous Outcomes

The good news about porcelain veneers and bonding is that these are noninvasive treatments—meaning these are two painless ways to achieve the smile you deserve. Not only painless but fast!

Braces and Invisalign can also close gaps between teeth, but with these two options, results take time. Additionally, braces and Invisalign are better utilized for more extreme situations—bite issues, crooked teeth, or other.
