If the gap between teeth is minimal, can be corrected with a tooth colored material. Otherwise an orthodontic correction will be considered

Hello, Being a cosmetic dentist,we can tackle this issue in many ways. Direct or Indirect composite/ceramic veneers or lumineers should solve your problem with very minimal tooth preparation. Regards Dr Suman Makam Dental Arts Bangalore

there are 2 approaches to it.if you have time on your side you can opt for long term treatment.if you need quick results you have to go in for quick results treatment.for quick results,i am not aware of the extent of the gap but if its not too high then a filling can be done using a material called composite which looks the same colour as your natural tooth.the problem with that is it can chip or discolour over a period of time.you can also go in for ceramic veneers that are thin chip like prosthesis put on the front teeth.they are very good looking and will do the job but are slightly expensive and also invasive as they have to minimally grind away the tooth surface.you can also consult the orthodontist for a long term solution for your problem as the orthodontic treatment may take over a year but is the least invasive.
Next Steps
consult an esthetic dentist or a prosthodontist for quick results and orthodontist for long term results
Health Tips
opt for the least invasive options first

The treatment depends on how big the gap between your teeth is. If it cannot be resolved by esthetic restorations then you might have to undergo treatment with braces. So undergo a thorough check up and then decide

Hi in case you are completely against braces you could check out with cosmetic filling, direct or indirect veneers. The best treatment could be decided only after a thorough examination/check up.Do visit a dentist and get the opinion.

Now a days Orthodontics is lot improved in esthetics department. If u need a permanent and long term treatment to close the gaps NATURALLY, Orthodontics is the best possible way. Instead of braces you can opt for clear aligners or else lingual Orthodontics. Please check through the web regarding those two treatment modalities. Thank you

If the has been there for a long-term then you can cosmetic veneers, even certain cases crowns can be used. But these would be alternative to braces or clip or orthodontic treatment. It always good to seek an appointment in person to get a clinical examination done so that best possible alternative can be suggested.
