Mind the Gap!
A gap between your front teeth can be seen as a fashion accessory or an embarrassment for some patients. If you fall under the embarrassment category, we have a few solutions for you!
The most common solution to fix the gap is with adult braces, we offer Invisalign trays that can fix this problem in as little as 3 months! Invisalign trays are a set of clear retainers that slowly shift the teeth into alignment. Today, 25% of braces nation wide are performed on adults. Another option is through a procedure called a frenectomy. This procedure removes the small fold of tissue that attaches the lip to the gums (the frenulum). This procedure can shrink the gum tissue in between the front teeth, allowing them to push together. Frenectomies work the best in teens and young adults. The final option is to build up the tooth with resin bond, enlarging the size of the teeth to fill the gap, this option works best in adults.
If you are interested in any of these procedures, call our office at 262-484-4356 and we can discuss what option would be best for you!
