Hello friend. Given your age I.e. 23 years, for the problem of spacing between teeth, it is very much recommended that you go for closure of teeth through braces or orthodontic treatment. This process utilises your physiological growth process to move your teeth into a new position in order to close the gaps. The result of this would be you natural teeth set in a new look without need for artificial filling or caps. The other option is to go for tooth coloured filling to close gap in case of front teeth. In case of back teeth, long term solution is to go for a crown(cap) on the tooth. Accurate diagnosis and treatment plan is possible on a clinical check up. Take care!

First of all you havent specified whether you have a single gap between teeth or multiple gaps or spacing between teeth. If its a single gap there could be posiibility of tooth decay and cavity with food lodgement, taking an xray would help. A filling can be done. Multiple gaps or spacing between teeth are best corrected by braces.

Gaps between teeth can be corrected in 2 ways. One is Braces and other is Composite (tooth coloured) fillings. As your age is 23 I would advice you to consult an Orthodontist for Braces.  If you are not willing for Braces then go for Composite fillings. Braces take 1 to 2 years for the treatment. Fillings take 1 to 2 appointments with a 1 hour duration each.

Hi A regular teeth coloured for front teeth may range from 800/- to 1500/- per teeth. Longevity of filling depends on the amount of space between the teeth and dentists expertise. Veneers is a better option to filling , though expensive but it will give you a good life and excellent results Regards

Hi,Depending upon how much gap is there in between teeth the treatment plan can be decided.There are various methods to close it either by doing a cosmetic filling ,putting ceramic or Zirconia caps on teeth or by braces treatment. The cost will vary accordingly.Braces treatment will take long to fill the gap (maybe one year ) as compared to fillings or cap which will require few sittings.

1-Gaps(spacing) between your upper teeth(front..? Back teeth as well..? ) 2- gaps may be due to carries.. We need to examine first. In 1st case gap can be filled with direct composite(tooth colored filling) or veneers etc. Or orthodontist correction required.  Again after examination.. In 2nd case need to take IOPA and filling etc can be done depending on the diagnosis. Sorry to say this,  cost totally depends on diagnosis, treatment planned for you,  dentistry is a science so no specific cost for any treatment,  might different for different locations,  dentist,  lots of factors.
