Its good that u shared ur pic..yes braces r the best option to close the gap and the full proof method..but if u want a cheaper way n a quick one too...composite esthetic designing works great and if nicely done it stays for long too...i prefer composites(tooth color material) to close these gaps over laminates cause at first thy r expensive, plus some of the tooth structure has to be altered but with composites ur tooth is as it was... hope u get ur problem resolved consult a nearby dentist for the best treatment..best of luck
Hi There, it's really unfortunate that you are dealing with this kind of an issue of gaps in upper and lower front teeth.
But, there is no need to get ashamed of it. There are multiple permanent solutions to rectify the same.
Considering your age, 25yrs, I don't recommend going in for composite fillings. It's cheaper, faster and easier, but over a period of time, it gets discolored and can even chip off.
First treatment option would be to go for Braces, for a permanent and natural solution. Disadvantage of this is, it may take a few months. To overcome this, there are various newer materials available like invisible braces, Clear path- clear braces, Ceramic braces or even lingual braces(from inside) or invisalign.
Second treatment option would be to go for Ceramic veneers or laminates. It is fabricated indirectly in lab and attached to the teeth. Teeth shape size and colour can be retained or altered as per our discretion. Only restriction with this is, to avoid cutting or biting on the front teeth.
Hope this would help you in resolving the issue. Consult your local dentist for the same.
