Thankfully, in today’s blog, we’ll be tackling this very issue. The space between your teeth, how you can properly treat it, and size discrepancy in your teeth. At Coventry Dental Care, we strive to provide dental care that will allow you to have healthy, beautiful teeth. By exploring tooth discrepancies, you’ll notice how much different you treat those pearly whites and how you can better follow dental care.
In an article from Colgate Professional, we’ll be covering that nuisance of extra space between your teeth. Even if you’ve had orthodontia, you may still be facing this problem, so take the time to go over treatment options and learn what exactly diastema is.
What is a Diastema and How do I Treat It?
Diastemas may also be caused by a tooth size discrepancy, missing teeth or an oversized labial frenum, the tissue that extends from the inside of the lip to the gum tissue where the upper two front teeth are located. Secondary reasons involve oral alignment issues such as an overjet or protrusion of the teeth.
What are My Treatment Options?
- Keep the diastema.
- Orthodontic treatment to move the teeth and close the diastema.
- Use porcelain veneers, very thin pieces of porcelain bonded to the outside of the teeth.
- Crown and bridge work or replacement of teeth with implants (adults only).
